Easwari Lending Library
British Council Library
Part of the British Council, this library is only open to members. But their collection is quite impressive anyway. Members have access to lots of British content, including books, films, e-books, magazines and much more. The library also hosts events quite regularly, which can be attended by their members – film screenings, book clubs and book launches, to name a few. They have different membership plans, including one for students and those who only wish to use their online catalogue.
