    Nice piece of info. Thanks for sharing it. But I feel reading fees is little higher. bcoz for a book costing 400 rupees you will land in paying 40 bucks !!

    Any idea if there is any good library in Indiranagar and around ?

    Eloor is the best private lending library in the town with a wide range of books! And the fee is just the same everywhere. If you want for lesser fee then the option is the government lending libraries. Although they have limited collection of English books they do have very good collection of Kannada books and a moderate collection on Tamil and even Telugu.

    In Indiranagar there’s a government lending library right behind the NDK Kalyanamantapa / New Horizon school.

    Alternatively you could try the online lending library – http://easylib.com/
    They seem to have a good collection and they have home delivery. I am not sure about their fee though.

    Happy Reading!
