Consul General visited the Sri Lankan Library in Melbourne and met its founder, owner and the passionate lover of Sri Lanka Victor Melder.
Mr Melder has a collection of over 5000 books on Sri Lanka, including rare and old publications. His library is open to students and researchers. Mr Melder has collected books since his migration to Australia over fifty years ago. Mr Meldor’s wonderful contribution was honoured by the Government of Sri Lanka with the national title of “Sri Lanka Ranjana”. It is a wonderful experience to be surrounded by such a large collection of books on Sri Lanka, a country with unending resources for books.
