    See Pics: Aizawl’s Free Mini Roadside Library Wows Netizens

    While some netizens called the concept an 'interesting' and 'innovative' one, others stated that it will not work in other states like Delhi

    In a world of gadgets, books are still our best friends. They are the best investment as they guide and inspire us.

    In a move to encourage reading, mini roadside libraries have been set up in Mizoram’s capital Aizawl. People can take, donate and read books whenever they want – all for free.

    Photographs of such mini roadside libraries in Aizawl has taken the internet by storm. The post was shared by an IFS officer Parveen Kaswan. He captioned the post as,”Now this is what every city must copy. Libraries are the best investment for nation-building.”

    This roadside library not only encourages reading and but also helps in building a community by providing free access to books. The initiative received warm appreciation by social media users and bibliophiles.

    It may be mentioned, Aizawl got its first-ever book café last year. The Book Café is located in the heart of the city at Hrangbana House, a shopping complex in Chanmari.

    Let’s check out a few comments:

    Mizoram has indeed shown the way for other states to adopt.
