Bengaluru: Karnataka Library Department’s e-library mobile app, which is said to be the first of its kind initiative in the country has seen an exponential growth in downloads during the COVID-19 lockdown, a senior Minister said on Friday.

The Library Department”s efforts to keep readers active through the lockdown time, by prompting them to utilise its e-initiatives is paying off, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Suresh Kumar said.

“The app is seeing exponential increase in downloads since its launch. As many as 16,500 people have taken it; while ten thousand people have downloaded it during this brief lock down time itself,” he said.

E-library mobile app was released by the library department on February 26.

There are over one lakh e-books available on department”s digital platform ranging from arts, humanity, school curriculum, competitive exams and self help to classic novels – all for free for the readers.

“Its needless to say, the variety of attractive content that is available in the app is creating all the buzz among the public…

Not just the books, the app contains over 600 educational videos too,” the Minister said in a statement.

Considering that over 16,500 readers have downloaded the app since its launch a couple of months back, its high time, we see this domain as an opportunity for growth, he said, and stressed on the need for better adaptability approaches to the changing times.
