Western Railway to Launch Library in Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express Today
Mumbai: Western Railway is set to launch a library on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express on Tuesday. The library can be freely accessed by commuters. Passengers can choose a book for reading during their journey. Aarti Singh Parihar, WR senior divisional commercial manager reportedly said that commuters must return the book once they leave the train.
The initiative to set up a library in the train was a first of its kind introduced by the Western Railways. Those passengers who travel in the Deccan
Queen and Panchvati Express coaches on Central Railway during the monthly season also have access to the books.
The library facility was made available in the two Central Railway trains in the month of October. The attempt is to encourage the habit of reading. Initially, the library would be set up with 70 books. The various genres of the books would range from history, politics, mystery and biographies to fictions, self-help books and storybooks for children, stated a report.
As a New Year gift for passengers, the Western Railway will introduce a library in Mumbai – Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express from January 1 wherein passengers can get access to some good books and novels during travel. @Srdcmbct12 @drmbct @WesternRly @Gmwrly

Parihar was quoted by The Times of India as saying, “In this mobile phone age, it is very essential to create and facilitate an environment in which reading books can be popularise. This library on wheel is such an attempt from Mumbai division.” Suggestions from the commuters based on the choice of books would be received to modify the collection, added the official.
