Before 1991, 'the Suratis' had places of entertainment and recreation like gardens, auditorium, swimming pools, and cinema houses and so on; but there was no full-fledged public library as a source of knowledge and information. Several stray Reading Halls provided only newspapers, periodicals and journals to the book lovers. The libraries of schools and colleges were restricted for their students. Therefore, the common man or professionals, technical experts, persons associated with trade and commerce etc. really required a Central Library with the collection of books of their field and choice.
