Library Extension and construction of Pergola roof:
The Vihara master plan has provision to extend the library room to be in line with the East Wing. This is to ensure the much-valued collection of books, manuscripts and other resource materials of the library are accessible to as many members of the community as possible.
As a necessary adjunct to this, the central paved area that is currently used to hold fund-raising food fairs and various performances such as Bhakti Geetha and children’s plays at Vesak, needs a permanent roof to protect that area from the elements. A curved roof along the lines of a pergola is considered to be suitable for this purpose.
The ASLBA plans to embark on these two related tasks as soon as possible once the Dagoba construction is complete. The ASLBA will seek further donations from the community for this purpose.
