Community Centre and Library
The Library ProjectMSWC operates a well stocked free library in the heart of Mumbai cityfor use of students andfor adults who wish to come in and read.The library has a formidable collection of over 35000 English, Hindi, Marathi books, and is a popular placefor people with access to reading material which is otherwise often unaffordablefor them.The Centre provides  a reading roomfor study, a Study Centre where discussions take place, a children’ s Activity Centre which undertakes summer workshops and contestsfor young readers, and access to career guidance and counselingfor young adults who have no oneelse to ask.

A Community Study Centre for students has been opened in the premises. Supported by the Mahindra Group and inaugurated in January 2015, it is especially useful during the exam season. Students with no access to a peaceful place to study through the day and late into the evening have adopted the Community Study Centre as a quiet haven. The number of users continues to grow with each passing day.   

Those wishing to donate can send in books, furniture or financial assistance  which will be used to replace worn copies, broken or unusable furniture and hire experienced staff, or personnel who are trained in library science and librarians who can keep up the activities and functioning of the Library.

Lotus Home For Senior Women Citizens
The MSWC also runs a residential facility for elderly women who use it for either short term or longer term requirements. The facility is a 16 bedded residence which is paid for in advance by the resident or by close relatives, and is a home away from home to several women over 65 years. Apart from well furnished and comfortable rooms, residents also use a common living area and a well equipped kitchen. Catering and housekeeping care are available at a nominal rate.Medical needs are looked after by visiting doctors and recreation in the form of regular indoor and outdoor programmes is also arranged.

While the Lotus Home is not a charitable institution, it is a facility in a city where safe homes for the elderly are not easily available and in that it fulfills a much needed gap.
