Abstract


Library movement in Telangana emerged as one of the most significant social movements witnessed during the first five decades of the 20th Century and carved out a niche in the history of Library Movement in Andhra Pradesh in particular and the country in general. This paper briefly traces the genesis and spread of the movement and deals with its characteristics, the establishment of Andhra Jana Kendra Sangham, its activities, library conferences, Andhra Maha Sabha‟s role in the spread of the movement, the role of individual libraries for the sustenance of the movement, cooperation between the leaders of the movement of Telangana and Andhra regions, the establishment of Hyderabad Library Association and its efforts for the enactment of Hyderabad Public Libraries Act, 1955, and finally an integrated A. P. Public Libraries Act, 1960 by the Government of Andhra Pradesh. The paper concludes that Library Movement in Telangana was truly a popular movement of the people, by the people and for the people.
