Origin of Bani Mandir lies in a village Library founded by some local people in 1945. The organization is still maintaining
the library in its own premises at Khordanahala.
The library has a good collection of books numbering around 2000 on different subjects. The beneficiaries of Bani
Mandir, especially children and youth, in different programmes are in the regular readers‟ poll. Besides, a sizeable
number of local people – student and non-student youth, women and others from surrounding villages are the readers in
the lending section of the library.
