CPL NEWS

November 4th was the second anniversary of the setting up of Chughtai Public Library. It is a group of
dedicated Learning Facilitators that
runs the place. Their commitment
in providing the best possible service
is remarkable. Ensuring comfortable
environment; they have attracted a
big number of regular users. I was
especially impressed by a lady who
after finishing her routine chores,
comes every day and goes through
newspapers and magazines.
As regards the organization of reading material, it has been done in the
proper scientific manner. They have
taken special care in assigning proper
numbering and maintaining the record of books that have been donated
to the place.
An interesting attraction for the users is the Free Service of coffee and
tea at the place. There was a group of
young readers preparing for an exam.

They seemed to be having a great benefit


from this particular service.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience
being among people who value
knowledge, and the quest of knowledge. I
extend my heart-felt appreciation and
best wishes for these unusual people.

She visited CPL on October
4th, 2015. She appreciated
the project by saying:
I've heard about people
who love their country and
give their best to make it a
better place to live. I never
thought of knowing such
people in person till the time
I met Dr. Akhtar Sohail
Chughtai and his team. And
I felt so lucky to get a chance
to visit Chughtai Public Library.
A place where anyone can
come and get the pearls of
wisdom. A place which offers you a great book collection for everyone. I was

moved to see Dr. Akhtar Sohail


and his team's devotion to
spread knowledge through libraries. His vision to encourage
reading habit and providing
people with a comfortable place
to study, read and learn.
This visit to CPL reminds me of
this great quotation
'At the moment that we persuade a child to cross that magic
threshold into a library, we
change their lives forever for
the better. It's an enormous
force for good.' Barak Obama
I congratulate Dr. Akhtar Sohail

Chughtai and his team for this brilliant initiative. This project is a beacon of hope and
knowledge for everyone.
