Although I’m no bibliophile or bookworm, I will unwind myself with a good book at times. This way, I take a break from the monotonous life and escape reality. Here, I’d like to talk about a library which I visited around a year ago. It was the Delhi Public Library, which is also one of India’s biggest book repositories. Some of the libraries in Delhi have immense historical importance and are almost majestic to be doing some reading in. The Delhi Public Library is incredibly well-stocked with over 1.6 million books, covering a dizzying array of subjects in various languages, one of the most enviable collections on the continent. As for genres, the Delhi Public Library has an enormous collection of competitive examination books, books about law, philosophy, religion, medical science, engineering, literature, and fiction. As a research scholar, I had to do a lot of research on a specific topic for my paper. So, I visited one of the Delhi Public Library branches. I explored the library for an hour and found the book I needed. Then, with a membership, I borrowed the book. I was pretty impressed with their Braille library and what caught my eyes was a well-lit reading corner, which was specifically designed for the readers, so that they don’t squint at the tiny prints of the book. The tranquility of the library will definitely attract you to go for more books. From my personal experience, this is one of the most iconic libraries I’ve visited.
