Mobile library to save time, money

MEMBERS of the public, particularly students, can expect a mobile library on their streets that will save them money, time and energy.

The Suva City Council special administrator Chandu Umaria is optimistic its plans will bear fruit once people realise the importance of reading.

Mr Umaria said the idea was to save students time and give adults an opportunity especially those who did not have the luxury of travelling to the Suva City Carnegie Library to enjoy the wide range of books available for all ages because of work and family commitments.

Mr Umaria said the Indian government, through their high commission in Suva had given $130,000 to begin this project.

He said the mobile library would service people from as far as Nausori and Navua, and they would consider other areas if there was a need.

“We have adults and students who do not have time to come down to the library because of their busy schedule,” Mr Umaria said.

“But rest assured, we will make this easier for you by providing this initiative to better students learning skills,” Mr Umaria added.
