Turbat is a major city of Balochistan where thousands of students face shortage of libraries. There is just one public library and there are no more than 1,500 books in it. Do the authorities think that just one library is enough to create a reading culture in Turbat? Due to the prevailing economic plight of people, buying books is a luxury that only few can afford. In fact, the students are craving for a library and want to read new books but no one is interested in establishing libraries in Turbat.
Students of Turbat appeal to the government of Balochistan to take serious steps towards establishing new libraries and also providing books to the existing library.
