Books are man’s best friend and a free for all access to that is perhaps one of the most heartening things. Actor and writer Manav Kaul has shared a photo of an open library outside his colony. As can be seen in the snap shared on Twitter, the open library is a small white coloured cupboard which has quite a few books. The library functions on the concept of ‘take a book, return a book’. The said cutesy free for all library has been named as ‘POPCO Little Free Library’.
Sharing the snap Manav wrote, “LITTLE FREE LIBRARY Outside My colony gate Take a book - return a book. I feel every colony should have this little library”

The post which has been liked by more than 15 hundred people has garnered quite a few reactions from netizens. Fukrey actress Richa Chadha too commented on the post saying, “I have donated several books here ... so heartening !”
A person who wanted to set up a similar library raised his concerns. He said, “Sir I wanna set something like this But..? How you manage people not to steal the book or torn or damage it? What if someone does so? Is the rule like put a book and take a book ? What are the practical hurtles and how to cross them ? Please response sir, it's a humble request”
