According to Santa Bir Ghaley, who chaired the Saturday’s inaugural program, the library was constructed with donations collected from various individuals including Dhungana’s resettled family, which accumulated to Nepalese rupees 40,000 (approximately 550 USD).

Various personalities including camp secretary Narad Mani Sanyashi, friends of late Dhungana and donors who contributed for books and cash for the library spoke about the importance of public library and contribution made by Dhungana in the field of education in camp.

Dhungana, who served in the camp schools as headmaster for a long time, died of snake bite on October 1, 2004 while undergoing treatment.
