Though India is getting digitize and Chandigarh is the also in the list of smart cities. But keeping in mind the reading habit of the people in Chandigarh, the Rotary club has gifted the first community library to Chandigarh. Mayor of Chandigarh has inaugurated the first community library situated in the community centre of Sector-27. The library has been set up with an aim to contribute to the betterment of the society.
Existing Libraries in Chandigarh
Though there are many libraries in Chandigarh including Central State Library in Sector- 17, British Council Library and Divisional Library (South) at Sector- 34. But it lack the crowd of the people. People are becoming more digital friendly and lacking behind the concept of reading in day to day life. Chandigarh city is a great mixture of modern as well as tradition, so to keep this alive and to improve the reading habit of the students here the Rotary club has taken this initiative.
More libraries to come up at Chandigarh
With the first community library, the Rotary club is all excited to open more and more book banks to help the needy. According to the proposal, in the upcoming days we can even see the community library in community centres situated at different sectors like-
- Sector- 27
- Sector- 30
- Sector- 44
- Sector- 46
- Sector- 48 (Newly opened community centre)
Apart from Chandigarh, it is also expected that the other Rotary club of the city like Chandigarh Shivalik and Chandigarh Midtown might also join the league.
This kind of initiative is really commendable and will be beneficial for the people who need libraries to read books. And as it says ‘Books are your good friends’, so this will help the people of the city to spend a quality and knowledgeable time.
