Pune: In order to inculcate the habit of reading amongst kids and others, the Pebbles-2 Society started a library last year in October. The society recently celebrated its first anniversary titled ‘Vachal tar Vachal’ on December 4.
As per information shared by the society members, on this occasion,poetess and writer Vidula Joglekar said that it is the need of the hour to preserve the culture of reading. Many housing societies provide attractive facilities for their members, but rarely does anyone find societies that provide free library facilities to children, youth, and senior citizens.
During the program, library volunteer Gitanjali Hattangadi said that the difficulties encountered since the establishment of the library and the satisfactory condition today are due to the great participation of society management and volunteers.
Among the regular readers, selected children, youth, and seniors were felicitated by the chief guest and secretary of the society Rajesh Shelke & library volunteers Angha Gunjal, Swati Surve, Aarti Deshpande, Dr Avinash Panat.
A memento was given to the family of the late volunteer of the library Ramesh Ashar on behalf of the library. Arpit Badwaik (Library volunteer) thanked the residents of Pebbles-2 Society for the excellent response saying that more than one thousand quality books are available in the society today. Volunteers Anuradha Patil, Madhavi Visaal, Kunal Deshpande, and Sanjeev Kusurkar worked hard to make the program a success.
