I first discovered “Divya Library”, near a small park , as I turned around a corner one day.
I knew about this library because a brochure was left at the doorstep of my house, but when I first saw it, an ordinary place with a small glass pane to look through, I did not feel like entering it.
But something made me open the door.
From then on, the world was different for me.
I have always enjoyed reading. But, I feel that the libraries enhance the reading habit, raising it more than the world’s biggest ocean wave! Books can take us to the world of crime , mystery, fantasy, wars, history, comical heroes, horror, making of movies, Jews, Nazis, autobiographies, deserts and much more . The books took me inside their world and shook me up.
Divya Library, therefore, is like a shop with unlimited experiences. Even though the library is small, I get a wide variety of books- enough for a lifetime. I read a whole bunch of books by authors Like MK Gandhi (Story of my Experiments with Truth), Eiom Colfer (Artemis Fowl), Dan Brown (different books and also Da Vinci Code ) ,Jeffrey Archer (different books). My favourite book is Fault in our Stars By John Green which describes the life of two cancer patients.
Through the library, I also understood the value of borrowing books rather than buying them.There are certain rules and regulations like returning the book in time and not damaging it. But that’s okay.
I forgot how time flew during the holidays. I even forgot to watch my favourite movie! . One the best parts about Divya Library is that I can even get some series of books, that I can’t get anywhere else. .
So this library is my Library of Congress.
