The American Center at the U.S. Embassy has re-opened with an interactive programming environment, an expanded collection of books, movies, audiobooks, and a video room.
U.S. Ambassador to Nepal, Randy Berry inaugurated the newly renovated Center on Feb. 26, 2019.
“The U.S. Embassy has modernized the Center to transform it from a static library and computer lab to a dynamic programming space to regularly engage with Nepali youth,” said Ambassador Berry after re-opening the Center. It was closed for renovations for two months and will resume its normal operations from Feb. 27, 2019.
Established in Nepal in 1952, the American Center’s mission is to increase mutual understanding between the United States and Nepal. The Center is one of the nine American Spaces in Nepal, from Dhangadhi to Ilam, providing a variety of resources to visitors for free.
Among others, it offers access to a range of online scholarly database, print and reference English materials for standard tests such as TOEFL, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT; computers with internet access; a DVD collection of American films; English-language periodicals; and dynamic engaging programs.
