The Sabarmati Ashram Preservation and Memorial Trust, which runs the Sabarmati Ashram, on Saturday renovated its library with computer facilities for readers. There are more than 55,000 books, a number of which have been digitized, and will be accessible by the public now. Readers will have to take a membership of Rs 300 per three months, though people who have a membership for any library in the city will have to pay only half the charges, according to officials. A computerized library management system has also been established. The books have been numbered, labeled and barcoded, making it user-friendly for research scholars.
There are about 800 books which have been digitized. These include Gandhiji’s autobiography in 24 languages, Mahadevbhai Desai Ni Diary (8 in English, 10 in Hindi, 23 in Gujarati), Vinoba Sahitya (21 Volumes in Hindi) and Mahatma Gandhi by Pyarelal (10 Volumes in English), among others.
