LIFE Membership

You might be glad to know that we are launching Life Membership Scheme for our Swami Vivekananda Library. The life members can avail the benefit of new 'Audio-Visual Section' which is an extension to our existing Swami Vivekananda Library. This scheme will start from 4rth of October 2011 on the auspicious occasion of 'Durgashtami'.

This 'Audio-Visual Section' contains CDs/DVDs on various subjects such as Religion, Philosophy, Indian culture, Value Education, Management, etc. These topics are expounded in the form of lectures by Swamis of our order as well as well as other renowned speakers. The library also contains value oriented animation movies for children, documentary movies depicting above mentioned topics as well as CDs on devotional songs, stotras, sankirtans, etc. Some of our present collections are given below.
We welcome you all to avail this unique 'Audio-Visual Section' facility by becoming Life Member (20 years) of our library. Anyone can become life member by paying Rs. 1000 /- as Life membership fee. No subscription fee will be charged. This public library is open to all irrespective of caste, creed, colour or religion.
