Knowledge is not only obtained from Schooling but also gained from other sources like books which deals with various aspects of life, academia and world affairs. The best place to gain that knowledge is a well stacked library which supports a community. One of the hurdle to stack the library is availability of books.
One such drive happened in Kovai on the republic day. Responding to the call by the Vice-Chancellor of Bharathiar University, the students of the colleges affiliated to it have collected nearly six lakh used books on a single day on Republic Day. At the end of the day, the collection reached six lakh, including literature, non-academic and academic, astrology and medicinal, majority of them being in Tamil. The collection would be handed over to President A P J Abdul Kalam, visiting here on February 24, who in turn would distribute them to libraries as part of the silver jubilee celebrations of the university.
