A library is that unique place which contains the wealth of information and knowledge that we all hope to imbibe. It not only inculcates the healthy habit of reading early on in life but is also the breeding ground of professionals—academicians, scientists, engineers, doctors and so on—who steer the country into new vistas of success. At Jiva, we believe in encouraging independent thought and a thirst for knowledge. Jiva library is not just a place dumped with books but acts as a resource room for all readers and thinkers to explore and present their work:
