Need for More Public Libraries

Pakistan library Association collaborated with the Department of Libraries Government of Punjab and the Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) to organize a literary conference. It was announced that AIOU will activate their libraries at 44 regional centers across Pakistan to promote book reading habit. Other attendees also discussed with joint strategies for migration from print to digital contents and to preserve all the digital resources.

All the speakers present on this event emphasized on setting up maximum number of libraries in Pakistan to promote book reading culture. For this, both the government’s and philanthropists of Pakistan have to make an effort. Books are the main source of knowledge and conducting research at a very high level of education. In order to nurture an intellectual generation, love and links of books should be promoted. All these things are a part of healthy and civilized society.

These kinds of conferences emphasize on the need to have more public libraries in Pakistan. There is this specific “literary culture”, which is missing from Pakistan. People do not value the existing libraries because they are not familiar with valuing the literacy culture. Have reading and promoting library culture can begin from homes.

People should have small libraries or reading rooms in their houses, which actually promote children to develop a sense of reading. This sense makes them better adults because they are able to realize that how reading is an effective part of every person’s life in general and personality.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
