Union Minister for Information Dr Pe Myint inspected libraries of Kyaukpadaung Township and Nyaung-U District of the Information and Public Relations Department (IPRD) yesterday, before discussing library development and promotion of knowledge with staff and local writers.
During the discussions, the union minister urged them to make libraries of the IPRD public-friendly places that promote the public interest and instill knowledge to the public.
He also pointed out the need for delivery services for people who cannot come to libraries and to provide books as well as offer chances for active games for children so that they will want to visit the libraries.
Then, the union minister requested staff to make efforts to display local products and cultural heritages at libraries as if they were small museums and to set up community centres at libraries in cooperation with civil society organisations.
