|The library celebrated its centenary year in 1970, on a big scale. It was conceived that this occasion should serve as a beginning of renasissance in the textile town. Accordingly, a summer time lecture series inviting various eminent persons of high repute in the fields of art, literature & social service is organized. A cross-section of the participating dignitaries reveals a virtual who's who of the modern day Marathi Literacy world. This lecture series draws on the lines of Vasant Vyakhanmala of Pune and has earned a high reputation for its unstinted period nearing its golden jubilee year.
