About The GGPGC No 1 Abbottabad:
GGPGC No.1 Abbottabad was established in 1953. It is located in the picturesque Abbottabad valley, which holds a unique position among the Hill stations of Pakistan. Due to its mild weather throughout the year, even during the three extreme winter months it is not formidably cold. This college has the distinction of being the second oldest college for girls in KPK. Its contribution to the development of education in the once backward area of Hazara is unmatched. A majority of its alumni have attained the highest milestones and are serving their country, despite the restrictive tradition and prejudices of our region. Presently, additional Lecture halls have been constructed for Post graduate classes. In addition, there is another three-storied building, “The King Abdullah Block”.
The College is well established and aims at providing quality education to all. Its objective is to produce such characters who lead the nation to prosperity and development. The institution provides a healthy and competitive environment for the development of academic and professional skills.
Lyme was established by a charter in 1761; the first library was formed on January 20, 1778 and called “the Social Library in Lime‚Äù. In 1908, the town voted to support a public library called the Lyme Town Library. By 1936, the library had outgrown its space in the Lyme School and the town accepted a bequest to build a separate library building across the street in memory of Sidney Converse, to be called the Converse Free Library. An addition was added to the building in the early 1980s.
