The group also pledge to equip the library with all the modern paraphernalia and amenities.

In Mr. Horadagoda’s own words “The library planned for Abimansala is a broad concept which is intended to stimulate the minds of disabled soldier. Like any other conventional library it will have a wide selection of books, journals, magazines and other relevant reading material but more importantly, it will have electronic devices allowing soldiers to interact with rest of the world so that they are able to contribute to society and the wider world through mechanism such as personal websites, blogs and chat rooms.” He also states that the library in Abimansala is a resource centre established with the sole intention of ‘firing the minds’ of this cohort armed personnel.
