After the capital city of Sindh, Karachi, another city Hyderabad is all set to get its first street library on upcoming 73rd Independence Day of Pakistan which will be celebrated on August 14 across the country.
The local administration of Hyderabad has taken a new initiative to support the education by developing a street library at city’s famous cool breeze road “Thandi Sadak” which would be inaugurated on August 14 (tomorrow).
The deputy commissioner of Hyderabad Fuad Ghaffar Soomro, through a tweet, said that the work on Hyderabad’s first street library has almost been completed and he will inaugurate the project on the Independence Day of the country.
As per the details, the library will be operated on the “take a book and leave a book” basis.
It is pertinent to mention here that the second-largest city of Pakistan’s province Sindh with a population of over 1.733 million has only two public libraries — Hasrat Mohani District Central Library and Shamsul Ulema Daudpota Library.
The local administration’s decision to establish the public library was appreciated by the students in Hyderabad as it will promote the reading culture among the youth.
