Uttarpara Pathagar

(Formerly Uttarpara Journal Association)

Uttarpara Journal Association, later renamed as Uttarpara Pathagar, was established in 1935 and started its activities at the residence of "DEB" family at the junction of Banerjee Para street and Bazar Lane. The Library later shifted to a new location on G T Road. Presently the library is housed to its own building at Mandir Bari Ghat at the bank of river Hooghly. The library started with an unique purpose of catering only Journals (English & Bengali) for imparting current and up-to-date knowledge to the readers. The back issues of journals (60/70 Years) are preserved as far as possible in the library. The rich collection of the library is important for the purpose of research and reference works. At present, the library subscribes to 30 journals and has a collection of over 5000 books, besides back issues of old journals.

 

The library has a free reading room. Subscription from members is the major source of income for the library - which is totally inadequate. Financial grant from West Bengal Government helps to some extent - but irregularity of the grant is a major hardship.

This library, at present, is going through acute financial difficulties which may force its closure in near future. It will be a sad day for every Utarparan if this library is closed down for financial constraints.
