Library, an Essential Tool of Learning
Life is not easy to live without friends and books can be our best friends ever. Good books enrich our mind with good thoughts and knowledge just like a good friend. We cannot feel alone in the company of books and library is an important medium to get hold of books as and when required. Library is an integral part of any educational institution, but the concept of Street Library is relatively new. The objective behind a Street Library is to provide books freely and accessibly to encourage all to read.
