There can be no gift of friendship truer than the sharing of knowledge. At the Uttar Bangla College in Kakina village of Lalmonirhat's Kaliganj upazila, Scotland's Sikh community has extended their hand of friendship across religions and continents through the donation of a campus library, named for the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak.

With a catalogue of 20,000 books in both Bangla and English covering history, science, literature and other fields of knowledge, the library has become an invaluable asset for the 6,000 students and around 200 faculty members of the college.

“Like other students, I sit in the Guru Nanak library everyday to read books and study,” says Bangla department student Mousumi Akter. “Because of the library we don't waste our leisure time. Instead we read books.”

Every day, from morning to evening, in excess of 500 students and teachers are drawn to the library, to read books, socialise and share ideas, with the library having also incorporated a teachers' union centre.
