While teaching Sikh History at our Gurdwara Sahib Sunday School I always used to wonder if I could have a “virtual library” at hand. Our teachers would often ask for reference material or articles they could refer to their students. There’s a lot of stuff available on the internet but not everything is genuine and based on the research done by the teacher was always different. We would end up sharing a lot of material over emails and shared documents. With new teachers coming in and repeating the whole experience was getting quite frustrating.

But a good thing that happened was that in 2-3 years we built a lot reference points including ebooks, websites, links, etc. And then this thought came up about sharing it with other fellow teachers. Enter TheSikhLibrary.

TheSikhLibrary app puts a lot of research/study literature related to Gurbani/History/Gurdwaras at your access. It let’s you stay up to date with Sikh issues/news from around the world.
