Why We Need Free Libraries

We believe libraries are the fuel for imagination, a sanctuary for questioning voices, and catalysts for change. They are the Oxygen for thinking minds. And they should be free to harbour and nourish free thought.

For far too long India's people, a large majority of them have been denied access to reading, books. They have been kept away from equal information. Without free libraries to provide that access to communities across India, we cannot imagine an equitable society.

Equality of opportunities is written in our Constitution. Libraries connect communities, make them stronger, and pave the way for a land of freedom and equality. They should be open to all, and they need to be free.
