Proclaimed to be India's first ever crowd-sourced library, this is a one-of-its-kind library with no name and runs on the collection that is made up of only pre-owned and pre-loved books by readers. Initiated by Pushpendra Pandya (Mumbai chapter), this library (it-that-shall-not-be-named) operates only via a Facebook page. It is essentially a library from readers, for reader, and by readers.
The Facebook page is the only way to contact the good guys who run the library. If you want to borrow a book for a cozy weekend in, just get in touch with them on Facebook where you can enquire about the list of books that have at that particular time. Once you take your pick, they will deliver it to you free-of-cost on a weekend.
If you are on the other side of things and want a happy place for your old books you no longer need, contact them and they even arrange for pick-ups for the same. The books you could find on the list start from children’s book and go on to western classic and contemporary novels. What’s interesting is that you may also find someone’s personal diary as part of the collection. Can't get any better than a mysterious online library that only gives love and takes love, does it?!
Also, they've been doing online meet-ups too, while we all collectively overcome the COVID-19 crisis.
Psst... we've heard that Pushpendra is planning a physical library that will be completely crowdsourced as well, so stay tuned!
