Twin cities’ libraries turn into deserted places

The number of books issued every month, entrance of new members and daily visitors are shockingly low in two main public libraries of Islamabad and Rawalpindi — Islamabad Public Library, which is closed for renovation for last six months, and Rawalpindi Municipal Library.
