    The Pashto Academy has a well stocked library of over 50,000 books. After the Central Library of the University of Peshawar the Pashto Academy Library is the most useful library. One of the most valuable acquisitions of the library is its collection of 1453 ancient manuscripts in the oriental languages. The Academy’s founder and first Director Maulana Abdul Qadir set the tradition that is still followed today of buying and collecting ancient manuscripts to preserve the Pashtoons rich cultural heritage for future generations. It was the dream of every Director of the Academy since its inception in 1955 to find resources to preserve these valuable manuscripts that are destroyed due to humid and hot weather, biodegradation and book worms..

    The Academy was very lucky when the US Consulate through its Ambassador’s Fund decided to finance the preservation of  these valuable manuscripts of  particular interest are the Shahnama Firdouse, Diwan e Rahman, Khairul Bayan, Kulyat e Khushal, Dewan e Ahmed Shah Abdali and beautifully preserved Holy Qurans. They are all excellent examples of calligraphy and beautiful illustrations. These manuscripts are invaluable to research scholars and students of not only the University of Peshawar but also oriental scholars of the country and foreign scholars. Researches from across Pakistan as well as Afghanistan and Iran visit the library to quench their thirst.

    The ancient Pashto books on language and Literature, historical culture are no more available throughout the world.
