In order to help students and people to learn about different subjects for free, the District Magistrate of Purnea, Mr. Rahul Kumar starts a campaign called Abhiyan Kitab Daan.
The motive of the campaign is to receive books from individuals (that are of no use to them).
Promoting his campaign, the local people of the district have so far donated more than 1.30 lakh books.
With these number of books, In just 2 years, IAS Rahul Kumar has formed 230 libraries in the district. These libraries are spread across 230 panchayats and 7 local urban bodies.
The books are on various subjects ranging from history, literature, geography, and competitive examinations.
Regarding the campaign, Mr. Kumar said, this will help the poor or anyone who can’t afford to buy books from the market.
Rs. 2.25 Crore will be spent on the Infrastructure
Seeing the huge success of the campaign, Mr. Kumar has decided to spend Rs. 2.25 crore to build the infrastructure of the library that contains the bookshelf, table, chair, etc.
Mr. Kumar has also said that soon there will be an exclusive web portal where anyone can get to know about the books these libraries contain.
Right now, a computer has been provided in 15 libraries and professionals are also being hired to train the members of these libraries.
Such a great initiative by the young IAS officer. Isn’t it?
