The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (LTWA) is a Tibetan library in Dharamsala, India. The library was founded by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama on June 11, 1970 and is considered one of the most important libraries and institutions of Tibetan works in the world. The primary objective of the library is to provide a comprehensive cultural resource of the highest standard and to promote an environment to facilitate research and to exchange of knowledge. The third floor of the library contains a museum (opened in 1974) containing notable artifacts such as a three-dimensional carved wooden mandala of Avalokiteshvara and items that date back to the twelfth century.
