Dayal Singh Trust Library

Founded in 1908
Brief History Established in 1908, Dyal Singh Trust Library is yet another example of the benevolence of the Indian elite and their desire to contribute to social welfare of the people in India.

The Library was established in pursuance of the will of Late Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia. Initially the library was introduced as a reading room with personal collection of one thousand books of Sardar Dyal Singh. Also Rs. 60, 000/- were allocated as preliminary fund to start this library. A trust was framed to run this library in accordance with the will of Sardar Dyal Singh.

This library enjoyed popularity before partition. In 1947 catastrophe, it suffered severe loss. A great number of books and furniture were damaged. The library remained closed for 12 years. It re-started its services in 1964 under the control of Evacuee Trust Property Board. Since then the library has witnessed several phases of development.
