Abstract
Kanyashree Prakapla is one of the most valuable public service schemes introduced by the Government of West Bengal to develop the lives and conditions of girl children in providing cash assistance especially for the economically backward families. The purpose of this study is to find out whether this pecuniary assistance of one time grant of Rs 25,000 is endowing the poor families with any other benefit apart from helping to arrange marriage of their girl children. With the aid of this grant the girl children from poor family background are able to continue their much needed studies. The main focus of this scheme is to reduce child labour, child marriage, school dropouts, to increase female literacy, and to ensure women empowerment. Public library is a place from where all types of information are disseminated. The main aim of this study is to find out whether public libraries are able to disseminate information about Kanyashree Prakalpa and other public service schemes to girl students of marginalized families in order to empower them. It is interesting to note that during survey, handsome cases of early child marriages were found as the most alarming subject of further research.

Key words: Women empowerment, public library, scholarship, female education, child marriage, dissemination of valuable information, Kanyashree Prakalpa, school dropouts, etc.
