On 28 March 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported: For farmers trying to figure out how to heal a sick cow or grow tomatoes commercially in this Himalayan community (Bhimdhunga), help is at hand in the form of a crumbling, earthquake-scarred library. In a rural area where searching for information online or paying for expert advice is rarely an option, the library is a first stop for female farmers daunted by their new role: running the family farm while their husbands are away looking for work. In Bhimdhunga, the library offers a computer suite, a children's nursery, and a women's health section, attracting about 200 active members from the mountainous neighbourhood. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of education and environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

In Nepal, the Tribeni community library in Bhimdhunga is one of 22 that are part of a 'Practical Answers' programme jointly run by READ Nepal, a literacy and anti-poverty organisation, and Practical Action, a British charity.

Besides providing resource books, the hubs collect queries from across the community, log them and set about providing tailored answers to farming and other technical challenges.
