Public libraries in Pakistan
Public libraries are a need of every society for the betterment of our young generation and old. A library is a place where you find peace, comfort, and knowledge simultaneously. The national library of Islamabad is one of the finest libraries.
The national library of Pakistan is located in the red zone area of Islamabad, the capital city. This Library has a collection of 34,000 Books to regulate the use of Library facilities and was established in July 1996 for the public.
It’s a very formal and peaceful environment. Its normal timing is 08:00 am to 03:00 PM and Sunday off. It is really a great opportunity for the students to quench their thirst for knowledge by discovering new and fascinating ideas from the books.
Instead of sitting at home idle and wasting precious time on useless things, one ought to take time and visit libraries. Because, even if you don’t intend to study, the environment of the library will compel you to open a book and get new ideas.
Not only the national library but there are many others existing in the twin cities and more in the rest of the country. On the other hand, Dr. Muhammad Hamidullah Library (IRI) is one of the most peaceful, with a nice setting. This is located near the Faisal Mosque of Islamabad. It opens from 8:30 am to 7 approximately.
I can not describe the beauty and peaceful environment of these libraries, what I believe is a library is the best place to enjoy your existence. To be honest, nothing makes me happier than a library with countless books. I feel alive in a library.
Societies with libraries will definitely succeed.
