A small village in the Northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh has set up a roadside mini library, where people from all sections of society can witness and experience the colourful & diverse world of books, for free.
Inspired by Mizoram’s Street Library, Ngurang Meena, founder of Ngurang Learning Institute, an adult education centre, decided to promote reading culture among students and youth by establishing mini library along the road at Rayo Village in the town of Nirjuli with the assistance offered by her students. The main motive that impelled her to come up with this initiative was the idea of “Padhega India Toh Badhega India”.
This remarkable feat has garnered appreciation from all over the country and will surely have an extensive impact on the lives of the people of the state. We hope that the idea of Mini Libraries is adopted by many other states of India. After all, as American journalist Ernest Hemingway quotes, “There is no friend as loyal as a book”.
