What’s Up at the @NehruCentreLibrary

The month of August has been to promote the love for literature and library spaces. The library with its plethora of activities was buzzing with life.

The Poetry Evening on 5th August was a big hit where we had the young poet, Puranjay Khanna in conversation with Ms. Urna Bose.

On 19th August  “World Photography Day”, young learners got an opportunity to attend the interactive session with Nandita Da Cunha, wherein she spoke about her love for reading, writing as she discussed her book “Who Clicked That Pic?” on the life of ace photographer Homai Vyarawala. The insightful and engaging session inspired many to take up writing.

A library visit was a great opportunity to provide a window to the students’ minds and open the doors of their hearts! We were happy to host students library science students of ‘SHPT Department of Library Science’ and ‘Akkamahadevi Women’s University of Vijayapur, Karnataka’ as also school students of the ‘The Somaiya School’.
