American Reading Rooms

Lincoln Corners

The "Lincoln Corners (LCs)" are the partnerships between the Embassy of the United States of America and the selected institutions of Pakistan. LCs provides access to current and reliable information about America through books, magazines, videos, internet, databases, and programs to the general public. The resources of the LCs are open and accessible to the public.

Each LC offers a "Window on America" and on its people, history, society, geography, government, and culture. This center is a place to read about America and to exchange views and opinions with Americans living in or visiting Pakistan.

Currently there are 15 LCs located in around Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Muzaffarabad, Peshawar, Karachi, Bahawalpur, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Khairpur, Larkana, Hyderabad, and Skardu. Each is staffed by a LC Coordinator, bilingual Pakistani professionals, who are available during regular library hours to assist visitors with specific interests about the America. Please contact the coordinators for information on visiting hours, access to resources, reference queries, and programs at the LCs.
