They do it for the love of books

They spend long hours amid the rows of books. Yet reading any one of them for leisure is a luxury for them. Librarians, the backbone of libraries, can track down and get books from the shelves in a jiffy.

Several librarians have taken up the profession for their love of books. Kalyani Sridhar who works in the library of a private school in Saidapet said, “I help children pick up good titles.

“I feel happy when students acknowledge my support in getting them information for their studies or competitions,” she said.
