American Corners

American Corners are partnerships between the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu and local organizations in seven locations throughout Nepal. They provide many of the same resources that are available at the American Library, including computers with Internet access, reference materials, and English-language resources. The American Corners also organize programs and events that highlight American culture. The first mobile library, called the Book Bus, was launched in November 2013. It seeks to provide library and information services to remote communities in Nepal.
