New Light-All The Sky Library-cum-Reading room

New Light Kolkata in partnership with All The Sky Foundation, Village Volunteers and Libraries for All launched the New Light- All The Sky Library-cum-Reading Room on 7 April 2018 to provide the children of Kalighat, its adjoining areas and the local community access to a world of books, to information and knowledge resources. At school, reading is taught to the children as drudgery, as means to an end, something that will one day land them a job. At a library, they come into contact with books of all kinds. A library gives them access; they discover the joys and purpose of literature on their own.
