World Book Day

Sana Samad

World Book Day is celebrated each year on April 23 to raise awareness about the importance of books. Libraries are the only source where millions of books are kept and can play vital role to bring close various communities. Unfortunately, in Pakistan there is no value of books and no one gives importance to the libraries. Only some cities are having good libraries, but half of the libraries are lacking books. As being the citizen of Turbat, the second largest city of Balochistan, there are two libraries but these both consist of just one room each. Whenever I visit these libraries I can see the students sitting outside and reading as there is no place to sit and study.
Around 4000 to 5000 books are present which are very much few. A library must contain millions of different books, but with only one room how these book can be accommodated. I request the government to provide books to the libraries of Turbat and allow the students to benefits from these books.
