    • The Social NetworkIMPACT … one user at a time It is simply a pride to join this group. I didnt know that the group of this library exists in the facebook. I had first used this library one year back. From that day, I am continuously using this library. For a student like me who is from one of the poorest countries on earth where there are not enough libraries and even the existing libraries do not have enough literature, it is something wonderful. Thank to those people who created it. - Facebook fan from Nepal
