Chennai’s ‘Green’ Library
Chennai’s first green library has come up on the CPR Foundation premises with more than 6,000 books and journals on environment.
The library has books on topics such as air pollution, biodiversity, environment education and wildlife.
CPR foundation director Nanditha Krishna told Deccan Chronicle that the library has more than 400 international documentaries on environmental issues.
“We want the younger generation to learn about green issues across the globe. This library is open to the public. We want to promote reading on environmental problems and solutions through this library,” she said.
Government school headmistress Vijayalakshmi, who visited the library last week, said she took notes on water pollution.
“I want to teach children about water pollution. Many of them do not have access to safe drinking water. All the students have to be educated about protecting the environment and taking safety measures to avoid water-borne diseases. This library helped me a lot,” she said.For further details contact 044-24346526/24337023.
