These days you do not see many book shops or library around, it was never a big habbit but recently after every one have gotten a smart phone people find time to spend in there mobile phones and not the books. There are still people who if given the chance will go for a hard and good read. Public library can solve this problem and therefore this library Pindsultani Public Library. Books are essential part of every person to shape his/her personality and prepare him for the challenges of life. People of Pindsultani made this effort to make sure that kids growing up have no shortage of books due to affordability or availability.
I have always felt the vacuum in me to not have read enough books growing up and I strongly feel that it helps a great deal to grow your mind and personality because of the knowledge and freedom you get from reading books, that was basic inspiration. To provide chance to people of my village to have access to books that otherwise might not be possible to afford for some of them.
