“You cannot open a book without learning something.”- Confucius
Every time a book is opened, something new is learnt, discovered. It would be wise to say- it’s a new journey each time wherein the reader wades through depths of mystery, immerses in the tranquility of philosophy or poetry, or merely spends hours at a stretch persuing topics of varied interests. Reading books has become a long lost habit, partly due to the technological advancements which have brought the global news and books at finger tips.
On this bitter note of poor book reading habits, one is forced to assume the worse- basically the decline of books stores and diminishing interests. However contrary to this thought is the very iconic wood panelled brightly lit store with rows and rows of towering shelves of books. This little haven is Liberty Books – Your complete book store. Established in 1961 liberty books is the fastest growing chain of book stores in Pakistan. With a wide range of subject matter covered for all age groups, a visit to the store is sure to satisfy book cravings for the entire family.
Superior educational institutions are one of the successful accolades accredited to DHA’s efforts.
