US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Robert Miller inaugurated "American Corner" in Rajshahi yesterday.
The corner was opened at Varendra University, a private university in Rajshahi, featuring American books, magazines and newspapers.
The US ambassador said there are American corners in Dhaka, Chattogram, Khulna and Sylhet; now Rajshahi has one too. Through it, students will be able to get information about the US easily.
The corner is mainly for students, but it will also be useful to people of all classes and professions.
Prof Dr M Saidur Rahman Khan, former Bangladesh high commissioner to the United Kingdom, also spoke at the programme.
