Mumbai Gets its First Little Free Library
In this day and age, where book reading has almost died among youngsters, 12-yearold Kiara Bose Roy, is not just into books, but has also become the official steward of the first Little Free Library in Mumbai.
The Little Free Library is a non-profit organization based in the US, which has started a worldwide movement to boost reading habits. Kiara, who loves to read, chanced upon an article about this and wanted to start one too. And that's how it all happened. This is the first one in Mumbai.
They now have kids from neighbouring schools and colleges coming over for books. Says Kiara, “Some street kids too have joined, and the smile on their faces have to be seen to be believed. They have seen nothing like this before- where you can just take a book you like with no strings attached. We have also had so many people come forward to donate their books to the library.”
