This week, April 8-14 is National Library Week. It’s a given: libraries have transformed our lives. Whether it was a sparsely equipped school library, or an uncle’s bookshelf, there’s a chance that a ‘library’ or a book that you randomly picked led you to this career.
So how did a library change your life?
I am asking this question from as many people as possible, and will post responses here. Do send me your mini stories!
