Where to read? Here’s the List of Delhi Public Libraries.

An invaluable source of information to many students, teachers and professionals, libraries in New Delhi offer a robust collection of many books, journals and many other reading materials in English, Hindi, Urdu and several other languages. It’s a pity though that Kindle is trying to take over books. There is a certain charm in an actual paper-and-ink book. How we truly wish we could rewind to pre-Kindle era.

In an effort to encourage you to go back to the joys of holding a hardbound book in your hand, we bring you the list of Public Libraries, where you can discover your next favourite read close to your student accommodations.
