Bibliophiles,Rush Into The Best!

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.


What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about books? The first thing that comes to my mind is Best friend. Books are a man’s best friend. Need to tell something to someone? There’s a book. Need to say something but can’t gather words? There’s a book. For everything and anything, you’ve got a book for you with a bonus! It doesn’t judge you. 🙂

Everyone of us must visit a library for once, for the peace they provide you. The calm of being in a place full of stories is just so baffling.

Here are some of the best libraries in Delhi that a bibliophile must visit.

1. Delhi Public Library

Where- It is located at various places. Visit

Broke and want to read a book? This place is going to fulfill your craving.
It is a central library and is spread all over Delhi that makes it quite accessible for everyone. One of its biggest branch is in Sarojini Nagar. It has a huge collection of academic, non-academic and regional books. The library has a separate kids section as well. What makes this library unique is that it offers membership for Rs 25-30 for a period of about five years.

4. The Ghalib Institute

Where- Mata Sundari Lane, Aiwan-e-Ghalib Marg, Near Bal Bhawan, New Delhi.

The name itself justifies that the place must have done justice to the books. Who doesn’t love Ghalib, anyway? The place is a must for all Urdu and Persian literature fanatics. The library has a broad range of Urdu letters. And as far as I believe, Urdu is the language of love.
