Discover what our favorite patrons are saying about library and Cultural Centre

‘Before the liberation war, I used to watch theatre in the British Council premise. I really appreciate that this organization works on Culture for development. And now they have the digital library which is a great asset for the young crowd in Bangladesh.’ 
Sara Zaker, Actor, Director, Chairperson, Mongoldeep Foundation.

 ‘The environment of British Council is always amazing. They offer diversified programs for young people and children which is very much appreciative.’ 
Asaduzzaman Noor, Actor, Politician and Activist.

‘I obtained family membership of the British Council Dhaka library so that my children can access the library resources. I wanted to provide my young daughter with the opportunity to read a wide range of books and needed to install the reading habit in my son’s profile. I am always delighted to see the natural joy in my children while they spend time in the library with books, play at the young learner’s corner or enjoy with their peer in the green lawns of the library premise. I feel relaxed to let them by themselves in the library with other young learners as the premise is child friendly and secured.’ 
Asraful Islam, Head of Procurement, British Council.
