Many of the services of Jaffna Public Library have declined in standard due to the lack of funds needed for its administration and maintenance.

It is feared that Jaffna Public Library may have to cease functioning in the future for want of funds.

Jaffna public library was burnt down in 1981 by the Sri Lankan Police and Sinhala thugs on the eve of the district development council elections. The library, considered as one of the finest in South Asia containing a cultural heritage that comprised around 97,000 priceless books and about 150 centuries' old irreplaceable Tamil manuscripts, lost its entire collection when the original two storied building was destroyed.

Widely regarded by the Tamil community as an act of cultural vandalism, the destruction of Jaffna library by the predominantly Sinhala police has long been a point of resentment.

Note to Arul - Maybe you should read more or educate yourself with history instead of bashing others' posts and comments. Your a low life that should get an education. And what's a demalu? Go learn some proper terminology or better yet, go read a damn book for a change instead of wasting your time.

ROFL para sakkili demala, learn the difference between "your" and "you're" before trying to "educate" others.
