Delhi Public Library was formed by the joint efforts of UNESCO and Government of India in 1951 followed by the full-fledged acquisition of the building in 1953. Mr. Edward Sydney, a renowned librarian was appointed as the Director in 1950. Mr. Frank Gardner, also a famous librarian succeeded him. DPL was set up with the primary objective of sharing and devouring of knowledge. DPL has been a pioneer in providing the visually challenged with a huge collection of Braille books.

Truly the library has surpassed the other Library by its valuable patronage for the visually challenged, the people from the lower strata of the society, the children and even the prisoners. DPL also has DELNET and computer facilities. The Delhi Public Library with a human and social cause thus has heralded a new era in library science and systems and marches ahead treading a laudable path.
