Sardarpur Jhandeer Town continues to attract people for its admirable peculiarities. Of all the achievements the town has made over the years, the Jhandeer Library stands out as a source of knowledge… It is the biggest privately-run library in terms of the number of books, which exceeds 130,000, in Urdu, English Punjabi and Seraiki on all important subjects. In 1995, the Sada-o-Cinema Iranian Broadcasting and Television Corporation telecast a documentary on the Jhandeer Library through satellite. The same year the BBC London also broadcast a documentary and appreciated the forty-year struggle of the family in preserving religious, national, historical literary and cultural heritage.
