An avid reader himself, Mandeep has dedicated his own space for the library. In the poster, the youngster has urged people that a library is going to come up at the village, for which there is a need for books, so,those having spare books can donate these for the library.

He has also reached out to the writers and artists to support him in this initiative, and has been getting a very good response in this regard.

“Until now I have received more than 250 books from writers and publishers. The library will start this week,” he said, adding that he now has books in Urdu, Punjabi, English literature, novels, apart from various magazines and newspapers. He has also got books from the Language Department, Punjab.
