Join TCLN

Joining TCLN is free and involves a quick two step-process. First, read and agree to the solidarity manifesto below and then submit your application form.

The Solidarity Manifesto

As a member of The Community Library Network (India) I attest to working to build, operate and propagate free libraries that welcome all without prejudice of caste, class, religion, gender & sexual identity or disability. Libraries associated with me/this organisation strive to create free access to books & grow readers, who may or may not have the means to do so themselves. I pledge to support TCLN and its members by sharing knowledge resources, networking avenues & solidarity in issues related to advocacy or policy-building for the free library movement.

As a member of TCLN (India) I promise not to indulge in any behaviour that puts other members or their libraries at risk or makes them uncomfortable in any manner. I will maintain civility & a spirit of fellowship in all my interactions on behalf of & within the Network.

By submitting the application form for The Community Library Network (India), I am now a member of this network.

Discussion Forum

On TCLN’s discussion forum, members catch up with the latest library news, share information about grants, fellowships and funding opportunities, talk about book purchase discounts, access library science courses and much much more.

The discussions are currently hosted on a Facebook group, but we hope to move to an independent setup very soon.

Join the forum

Note: TCLN's Facebook group is a closed group. Please answer the 3 questions that pop up at the time of requesting entry.
