Welcome to Don Bosco Chinthanaloka Library

The birth of Don Bosco library in 1995 at Chinthanaloka had inaugurated a new era of our Srilankan Vice Province forming and accompanying our young confreres for future. With the immediate post novitiate formation integrated with philosophical studies and research led the process of our library to great horizons. Many of our senior confreres have generously donated books and many other resources in forming our library. Number of communities came forward to support our project financially. The Delegation House at that time allocated Rs. 30,000 periodically creating a library fund. Our major superiors had a keen interest in strengthening our library project. Their periodic visits have opened new opportunities to acquire new volumes. A number of books have been acquired from India with the generosity of our Indian superiors and confreres. In 2002 our library found a definite and more organized project with the founding of the new library building blessed by Rev. Fr. Benjamin Puthota our late Delegate Superior and inaugurated by Rev. Bro. Gabriel Garniga our provincial economer. With the temporary suspension of Chinthanaloka in 2008 our library experienced a desertion and dispersion losing a number of important books and volumes from her possession.
