Kalaburagi: The North Eastern Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NEKRTC) along with the Zilla panchayat, education department, and library department in Kalaburagi district rolled out the mobile library bus.

The initiative was started with the aim of encouraging children in remote areas to inculcate the habit of reading, said Kurma Rao, Managing Director of the NEKRTC.

“We receive overwhelmingly positive responses from both teachers and students across the district wherever we go. The main objective of this is to inculcate the habit of reading and to get students interested in various kinds of books. The bus is now roaming in interior villages,” Rao said.

The unconventional library, in an old bus with over 4,000 books and about a hundred magazines, will soon allow students to issue books and return them the next time the bus visits.

“Children are very keen to issue books from the library as well so we are planning to come up with a program that will allow students to borrow and return the next time,” Rao added.
