Its Background

The Hluttaw Library was first started at the Pyithu Hluttaw Office, Yangon in March, 1974, and it was moved to Office No. 20, Nay Pyi Taw on 30 September, 2007. In August, 2012, it was moved from Office No. 20 to the compound of the Hluttaw where the current library exists, and the tasks of reforming the Hluttaw Library began. The Hluttaw Library was reformed with the formation of the e-Library by the library reformation group, and the discussions carried out by the local library experts.

Since the period during which the Hluttaw plenary sessions were first held in 2011, effective services have been provided to the Members of Parliament and the Hluttaw staff in accordance with the guidance of the heads of the offices with a view to developing the Hluttaw Library by adding more publications, appointing new library staff, adding more library-related furniture, computers and the computer-related materials, and using the Library Management software for the set-up of the e-Library.
