Modern day private libraries, can we really call them Libraries?If a person is asked about a library, the first picture that pops into his/her mind is of big halls full of big wooden and glass cases filled books and a number of people reading books deeply into the books with focus only and only on the book.
But with the new century, a new decade and new technology even this concept has been changed a lot and I guess many elder people who have not visited this library might not even be aware of this. Now the libraries we have in big cities are completely different they are not about the books but just about the silent space that you will buy for focused studies. Based on the number of hours you have to study and the amount you will pay you will have a cabin-like place in the library where you have to bring your own books and study by yourself. And they will charge you for the amenities like WIFI, AC and Newspapers but no books in these libraries.
You will find advertisement and hoardings of these libraries in any area where there are coaching for various government jobs.
So this evolved and the private library is basically a rented space for focused study and nothing else. But students pay huge sums of money every month on an hourly basis be it 6 hrs,8hrs,12hrs and 24 hrs. It is such a great business idea if you have a house in an area where there are a lot of students. What is your take on these libraries?
