Hey has anyone ever been to Metcalfe-e-Hall in Kolkata I heard about the place from one of my friend. This heritage building now houses Calcutta public library. The collections here are actually donations from individuals. Metcalfe-e-Hall also holds a prestigious link with the Tagore family. Does anyone know in detail about the collections and the location of this building? I am planning to visit soon.

What was this hall before being a public library? How is it connected with Rabindranath Tagore?

Earlier it was maned as Calcutta Public Library. Dwarkanath Tagore was the first proprietor of Calcutta Public Library and Dwarkanath Tagore was the father of Rabindranath Tagore.
