Karachi’s first street library will open on December the 25th by Sindh government. The idea came to Commissioner Karachi Iftikhar Ali Shallwani, who wanted to promote education and book reading habits within people. This library will be near the Metropole Hotel. Further, Karachi Commissioner’s Office has decorated the walls surrounding the built-in library with portraits of the founder of Pakistan, his sister Fatima Jinnah and poet Allama Iqbal.
“Take a book and leave a book” is how this library will operate. Hence, its success is riding on the shoulders of the learned citizens of Karachi.
