The Primary Objectives:

The primary objective of the library is to provide a wide-range cultural resource of the highest standard and to promote a milieu to facilitate research and the exchange of knowledge.

It was really fortunate for all the TCV School Chauntra Staff and students to get to know about this unique organization from the General Secretary of Library of Tibetan Works and Archives Mr. Nagwang Yeshi la. This year it was the 2nd visit or book fair by Library of Tibetan Works and Archives. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks especially to Lowell Thomas and Lowell Thomas, JR. for their exclusive and precious photos when journey into Tibet. In a nut shell the book fair cum resource person talk was really a thought provoking and a knowledgeable one. We would love to have some more of such kind of Photo exhibition and book fair in the near future.

The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (LTWA) is a must visit for the book lovers.
