The journey of RMRL over the last 30 years has been made possible by the support of several institutional grants, philanthropists, Corporate Social Responsibility programmes, and donations of individuals.
This is an appeal to support RMRL.
RMRL has an impressive collection of 500,000 books and documents, making it a global model for scholars who want to gain insights into the development of Tamil print and audio-visual culture. We invite you to join us in our endeavour to build a centre that fosters innovation and capacity building and becomes a valuable resource for exploring the long and layered journey of Tamil.

Roja Muthiah Library (RMRL) has embarked on a remarkable journey to create the Tamil Knowledge Campus—a vibrant space dedicated to research, knowledge building, and showcasing Tamil culture and civilization.
Your contribution will enable RMRL to realise its expansion plan. In the first phase, the existing building will be modernised with state-of-the-art research facilities and an enhanced reference service capable of accommodating large number of researchers.
As part of the expansion plan RMRL will establish dedicated workshops and research labs for students and independent researchers. The second phase of the development will witness the creation of a new public engagement space featuring a modern auditorium, contemporary classrooms, an amphitheatre, and two exhibition halls. RMRL also plans to setup a museum for print culture and an Indus Interpretation Centre. Residential facilities are also planned for visiting scholars to enhance the research environment for visiting scholars.
RMRL is working in several areas that need your support. You can donate books from your collection to the library. You may also extend financial support to RMRL’s activities such as organising exhibitions, seminars, lectures, preserving material and purchasing equipment.
