Discover Something New
The Library @ Koota was initiated by the community, and has now evolved into a a more layered program. A community space that goes beyond books and information, it encourages participation and creation of experiences that inspire learning. Apart from being home to books and films, the library is a platform for sharing skills and knowledge from within the neighborhood.
The library has grown into a space for professionals as well as amateurs to share their passion and expertise. Authors sharing their work, through readings and workshops, presentations on topics of interest, activities for different age groups. Working in tandem with the prevalent theme at Koota, we have seen science fiction complement the theme of astronomy and a session on Kenneth Anderson during wildlife month. We hold events to inspire and spark the imagination and that bring the community together. Book picnics, Game nights, theme based events all bring the lively energy required to sustain an idea like this.
We have a fledgling collection of titles across genres, for all age groups. The Library functions on an annual subscription model and the resources are used to purchase new books. We also receive books from members that add to our burgeoning collection. We have a cosy reading room where members are welcome to spend time reading and discussing. The children’s corner with bean bags and cushions is a popular hangout.
