Kolkata: Three libraries in Kolkata are getting Career Guidance Centres, courtesy the State Mass Education and Library Department, to facilitate students who are appearing for competitive examinations like West Bengal Civil Services (WBCS). The department is also trying to rope in teachers who can guide these students for competitive examinations.
The three libraries that will have this infrastructure are located in Ultadanga, Ballygunge and Khidderpore. There are plans to extend this facility to some district libraries as well in the future.
The Library Department will equip these libraries with books and other relevant study materials so that the aspiring students can spend time in the library, preparing for their examination. It has been seen that many students do not have a conducive environment at home for making preparations, and hence the decision was taken.
