CLS to set up mini-libraries

Chandigarh Literary Society (CLS) shall be setting up mini-libraries in select institutions in the city under its Gift a Book programme, informed Ms. Sumita Misra, President of CLS.

CLS launched ‘Gift a Book’ programme in May this year to make available the books not otherwise accessible to certain sections of society where CLS would set up mini-libraries, she added.

The first collection box for books has been placed outside the British Library in Sector 8, Chandigarh, for a month and would be rotated to different public places besides setting up more collection points.

A large number of books which we have read and are not using, can be put in the box or brought at the functions organised by CLS from time to time which would be gifted to the select institutions, she added.

CLS has identified several institutions where it would set up mini-libraries and gift books contributed by the public including Cheshire Homes in Chandigarh, Vatika School for Deaf and Mute, Senior Citizen Homes, etc., over a period of time.

CLS members brought along books to gift for this project at the British Library (see photos)
