HRF Announces Best Library Award
A library is known, in fact was conceived, to be the epicenter of knowledge. In it lies the splendor of information, leading us to the answers of mysteries we catapult ourselves into. And the librarian? The sober stalwart holding the wisdom of what belongs where, not only in his/her own library but also in the written works around the world.
Imagine a bunch of curious young children setting foot into one such library, and what if they find librarian being of their own age? This is the hallmark feature of Chagaletti Makkala Granthalaya (Chagaletti Children’s Library), situated along the borders of Bangalore and run by the Child Rights Trust. This library, worth all its efforts, was awarded “the best library in a community centre” by Hippocampus Reading Foundation (HRF).
