A meeting venue for those of the high up’s in Colombo has now been converted into a community library. Lakmahal, at number 8A, Alfred House Road, Colombo 3, has undergone many changes since.

Young Anisha Dias Bandaranaike wanted to have a place for people to read in a relaxed environment so she thought that it would be good to share a space with books and like-minded people.
She wants people to come and talk.

The dining room where the elite dined in colonial times is now a reading room. The library is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Library membership is LKR 500 per month and LKR 5,000 per year.
