Gilgit, September 13: Employees of the Municipal Public Library in Gilgit have been waiting for promotion to the next grades, for two years. The Gilgit-Baltistan Finance  Department’s lethargic response is the main reason behind the delay in promotions, according to reports. An application demanding promotions for the employees has been gathering dust at the Finance Department since 2011.

The library has rare books  and documents related to the history, society and geography of the Gilgit-Baltistan region

Employees of the region’s biggest public library were trained with the help of USAID two years back, as part of the preparations for upgrading the facility.

Sources informed that the Local Government Ministry and the then Deputy Commissioner, Asad Zamin, had approved an application seeking promotions for the library staff but so far no action has been taken in this regard.
