Mr.N.Anandaraj, Head of the Provincial School Library Development Unit made the introductory address.

Mr.V. Rasiah, Additional Provincial Director of Education said even teachers are not using library to enhance their knowledge outside the school curriculum. They should lead the students in developing the reading habit.

Mr.Kuruppu Arachchi, Director of Education in the Ministry of Education for School Library Development also spoke.
