Funny Facts About GPL Multan

The staff is brilliant and cooperative. Even they blocked my membership card two times. I really appreciate that they respond quickly and help immediately.

Institutions are allowed to visit with their students but permission should be taken from chief Librarian. Funny facts that never mess with the IT guy and never take 'panga' with their PC's. Remember Cameras watching you everywhere.

Services For Library Members

They also offer free drive (500 MB) to their members to save their files online.  Every member gets a unique username and password to access the computers. You can also check which books have been issued, fee renewal dates, and read books online. 

Every type of book is available. Suggestions are that must visit the library when you come to Multan. I am a member of the library for the past year and I considered it a masterpiece for the people of south Punjab.

Check and balances are very strict. Lift facility is also available only for old citizens. Prayer rooms also situated on the first floor. Free parking facility is available for everyone. 

My Suggestions

If you are not a member then my suggestions do not bring the bags. Locker facilities are only for the members. There is a  separate hall for Tv and newspaper lounge. Wearing Chappal and trousers are not allowed & you can not make your entry in the library with them.
