Opening of the Library Bookshop

The Main Library of the University of Kelaniya recently established a bookshop within the library premises that displays and sells books and other publications written by the academic staff members (including the retired academics) of the University.

The Bookshop was ceremonially opened by Senior Professor Nilanthi De Silva, Vice-Chancellor of the University on the 11th of January 2023.

This bookshop is a unique feature as this is the very first bookshop to be established in a university library in Sri Lanka. It will provide a platform for academic staff members of the university to disseminate their research and publications to a wider community. At the same time, it will serve as a showcase of the research and publication output of the university. The profit generated by selling publications will be utilized to further enhance library services.
