Mudit Mohini, Director, Vishv Books, believes that library culture, which was prevalent till 1990s, is disappearing at a fast speed. What are left have zero funds to update themselves. Friendly neighborhood bookshop is disappearing due to rise in reality price. Advent of tablets have further distant the reader. They were thought to be tools to read books but are used more for gaming and social networking. So how do we expect child to read a book or to develop the love for books. Internationally library is considered important as according to them libraries provide their children with information and resources not available at home. In this book fair Vishv books will be acknowledging library and will be creating a stall into mini library ‘lovable library’ to attract book lovers and e-book lovers both.
