ISLAMABAD: A book bank has been established at the library of National Language Authority (NLA) as a study resource for the students of schools, colleges and universities. The book bank aims to provide maximum facilities to interested students and scholars. “Presently, over 35,000 books are available at the book bank and it would be expanded in future,” NLA Public Relations Officer Javed Malik told The Express Tribune. He added that the readers would have easy access to the books, with a simple registration process. Only student card of the respective college or university would be sufficient to borrow a book, he said. Students can issue a book for two weeks, and if interested, they can also buy the books at 50% off the listed price. The book bank will remain open from Mondays to Fridays from 3pm to 5pm and on Saturdays from 11am to 3pm.
