United States Information Service (USIS) gave library services up to 1970 and closed these services due to some priorities and handed over to Shaheed Hakeem Muhammad Saeed who was the Chairman of the Society for Promotion and Improvement of Libraries (SPIL) with one year’s budget. He further gave it to the Commissioner Quetta Division and it was named as “Quetta Divisional Library”. During Mengal regime Mr. Gul Khan Naseer the then Education Minister renamed it as “Balochistan Public Library” in 1972. During 1982 a Technical Working Group was formed for the inspection of public libraries of country. The group inspected the Sandman Public Library for two days and this library for three days and recommended this library to be declared as Provincial Library.
