Mobile Libary in Dharwad and Hubli
Shilpa Malgimani, homemaker who resides at Manjunath Nagar, said the mobile library service in Hubli city is provided only for three days from Thursday to Saturday. And in these three days the vehicle has to cover more than 40 points in the city, approximately 30km a day.
"As the library is about 5 km from our residential area, we depend more on the mobile service. But the mobile library comes once a week. Sometimes, it doesn't come at all. When we asked the authorities why the mobile library doesn't come regularly, we were told that there was only one vehicle which had to cover the entire district,'' she said.
Bhavana V K, said that the mobile library hadn't been coming to their area for the past few days. "There should be one vehicle each for Hubli and Dharwad. This will cut down on the long wait for the books and will also facilitate quicker rotation of books,'' she said.
