Books at your doorsteps

By Shaharyar Khan

The Moving Bookshop is a project of British Council (Active Citizen Project) launched by the students of Lahore College for Women University in collaboration with The Educationist newspaper, aims at promoting book reading culture and providing old and news books at very economic rates to readers at their doorsteps.

The project also provides entrepreneurship opportunities to those who are considered have-nots of the society.

The opening ceremony of the Moving Bookshop was held at Punjab University Institute of Communication Studies (ICS) on Friday 04-08-2017. The guests were ICS Assistant Professor Muhammad Shabbir Sarwar, Assistant Professor of Business and Information Technology Punjab University Fahad Ali Kazmi, Lecturer of English Department at Superior University Areeba Tayyab and President of Youth General Assembly Mr. Fahad Shahbaz.

The Moving Bookshop is a facility for the busy people, who could not find time to purchase books from a specific shop or a market. It is an opportunity for those parents and students who have no specific conveyance and face many difficulties to visit the market far from their home. It’s a good step of some students of LCWU who have introduced it in a market. With the passage of time it would become a successful project. It would be at a place from where the book lover passes like Mall Road, Jail Road, Gulberg, outside the universities and the places where the book lover can approach it easily. It would be also available at main markets of busy areas.

The shop has unique books which are just available at main market or specific bookshop so that the people who face difficulties to get books can have an easy access to books at their doorsteps. In this computer and mobile phone age people have lost in the new technology and they have no time to visit books shops and read books. This project will promote book reading habits in society.

I must say that books are everything for us, if the books were not present we can’t get knowledge easily. If we are something it’s just because of books, so we must respect books by reading them.
