India’s blue buses bring books to residents of Bangalore in Southern India
Dedicated to Dr S. R. Ranganathan, the father of library science, this retired 1990s blue bus was converted to a mobile library complete with a driver-cum-librarian. Residents regularly await the arrival of the bus that carries over 6000 books in multiple languages available to check out at lower prices than monthly fees at city libraries.
The book mobile even has a small seating area inside for browsers to flip through pages. If you look closely, you’ll see that it offers much needed shade for canine customers too.
