Access to books at an early age, interaction with peers, activities and discussions based on books help the child discover her/his potential and to appreciate that of the others.

Published by Indian children’s publishers and written and illustrated by well-known Indian authors and illustrators, these books promise much value addition to the library through their international potential, multicultural appeal and world-class artwork.
