Today Internet is the most important tool for accessing information. But such a large segment of the society can not utilise this opportunity thus we meet with the fact which is called "digital divide". The public libraries are accepted as the most suitable alternative to deal with this problem. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provides financial support to the public libraries of developing countries, through Global Libraries Initiative.

In this essay, the Project is described from different aspects.
