Letter of chairman of the Iranian Library Association to Parliament for revision in the public libraries budget

 

According to lisna, the chairman of the Iranian Library and Information Science Association in a letter to the president and members of the Plan and Budget Commission Parliament has called for a revision in the budget dedicated to public libraries in 1396.

Dr. Fariborz Khosravi’s letter starts as follows:

Dear president of the Plan and Budget Commission Parliament

Greetings,

We are followers of a school whose eternal miracle is “book reading”. Word of God in his book starts with “read”. Swear to pen and inscriptions are indicative of a kind of sanctity dedicated to books by Islamic Thought. The emergence of influential books and libraries in the area of Islamic civilization shows how Muslims firmly believe in this human phenomenon.

Dear members of the Commission,

As you are aware, one of the important tasks of associations, as civil institutions, is to monitor areas by which the association is shaped. Regardless of the bright history mentioned before, we have witnessed for many years public libraries that play an important role in cultural development of the country did not follow a due process and even in some areas they had gone astray. Fortunately in recent years inappropriate methods are relatively improving and we have witnessed the growth and prosperity of public libraries both qualitatively and quantitatively in many sections. Public libraries are important centers for studying and learning in society.

No doubts one of the main factors that can confirm and maintain this auspicious process is to designate appropriate budget to institutions that are responsible for managing public libraries in the country. Although some institutions experienced a 40% growth in their budget, unfortunately the designated budget for public libraries with 7000 educated working librarians and more than 3000 urban and rural libraries is insignificance.

The reverend members of the Commission are well aware that libraries play an important role in development and any failure to provide adequate funding would reduce the impact of these institutions and the enthusiasm emerged will diminish.

Iranian Library and Information Science Association ask MPs to reconsider the issue and dedicate appropriate budget to such an influential institution and pave the way for the efflorescence and development of books and reading in the country.

Regards,

The chairman of the Iranian Library and Information Science Association
