District Library, Fatehabad


District Library, Fatehabad

Like most other places in the state of Haryana the Fatehabad district area has a historical background dating back to the ancient periods. It finds mention in Mahabharta and Puranas. This region is supposed to have been part of the kingdom of Pandavas and their succesors. The region was part of Nanda Empire Maurian Empire and Kushan Empire. The Rajpoots, the Sikhs, the Marathas, the Mughals, the French and the Britishers have fought for it at one time or the other in history and have possessed it for different durations.

Fatehabad town was founded in the 14th Century by Firuz Shaw Tughlak. He named it after his son Firoz Khan. The district was carved on 15th July, 1997. The library is quite a younger member of the public library system in the state. It was established on 22nd February, 2007.
