Mayyil is surrounded by around half of its boundary by Valapattanam river. Beautiful River banks and Islands are seeking tourists.

More Facts On Google Earth, Mayyil looks just like any other village in North Malabar: lush, green and dotted with rivulets, hillocks and small shops. On the ground, this looks a lot different, especially when you start reading the signs. Almost every road in this grama panchayat in Kerala’s Kannur district leads to or ends with a library. The panchayat, which has a population of a little over 30,000 people in 33.08 sq km with a literacy rate of a a97.93 per cent, boasts 34 functioning libraries, arguably the highest for a local body in the country.

“Libraries are a way of life for us here. Every library competes with each other to organise literary events, social gatherings and political meets in order to make the people more progressive, culturally sensitive and secular,” says U Janardhanan, a retired government employee, sitting inside the modest librarian’s room at the public library in Mayyil’s Velam, a beautiful village also famous for its ancient Sri Maha Ganapati Temple.
