Central State Library is a mother organisation under which other branches in the
rural and urban areas are functioning in the UT Chandigarh.
With the demographic expansion in the UT
Chandigarh, comprising a
sizeable proportion of the literate population, the demand for library services
began to emerge in the 1970s. Consequently the Administration extended the
library services of the Central State Library through a network of branch
libraries in urban
as well as far of rural areas.
