Akshar Bharati is really encouraging the habit of reading in children between age group 5-15 years from underprivileged and remote areas. Can the similar be done for the poor students who stay near to our office/society etc? Also can we have a library for us or our children?
Akshar Bharati Community Library is one such initiative by which we can address above.This library will be open to all and will have books for each age groups. It will be free for people who can not afford but will have some minimal charges for others. By this it can become a self sustainable model.
Apart from this it’ll have a computer lab which will be available to all the members. It’ll also have a data server which will have:-
a. ISOs of different Linux distribution.
b. Video lectures from different universities
c. Any Creative Common Licence content.
Currently we procuring new books and collecting old books. If anyone wants to see any specific book in the library’s book-self or want donate old books then then I can be contacted. The person who donates books will get free subscription for few months.
The library will be inaugurated on 3rd July’11.
