One can never emphasize enough on the role of libraries to inculcate the habit of reading amongst the children. Keeping this belief, Pikk a Book aims to see more and more people reading, encourage reluctant readers to read for fun, get techy or go graphic.
Studies have shown toddlers/pre-preschoolers or the ones already going to school who read every day, to have a wider spectrum of vocabulary when compared to their peers who don’t read at all. It has become imperative in today’s evolving times, that children understand adequately to formulate and communicate their ideas effectively.
Reading not only helps children build their perception, but they also explore different worlds, different belief systems, and varied societies through reading. We believe that reading helps transform lives and help each of us in reaching our potential.
Just when I thought the reading culture was long lost in this phone culture, I got to know about this library. Home to many books, this place brought back the memories of simple old days. It's a warm and a welcoming place, where you can read your book peacefully. It provides a very homely environment. Definitely recommend this place.
The best place to challenge yourself intellectually, get surrounded by plethora of knowledge in this fast - paced digital world where we are losing the ‘physical’ connect with books. If you complain that your child doesn’t read, then Pikk a Book is ‘the’ place! Book - reading, story-telling, meet the author etc etc ... you name it and Pikk a Book has it!
When reality bugs me, I seek refuge in books... And I found my refuge in 'Pikk a Book', Gurugram. I had, one day, walked into this library out of curiosity and found myself inside a treasure house of books... Books for the tiny tots, for the teens and for the elders... 'Pikk a Book' has just the right vibes for an avid reader.. Run by Ms. Suman, this is a place that she takes care of like it's her baby... And yes, if you can't decide which book to lay your hands on, trust her with her recommendations... 🙂 Cheers!!!
A unique place that combines fun with learning. We were looking for a place to celebrate our 10 year old daughter's birthday and came across Pikk-a-Book. We are glad that we opted to celebrate her birthday there.. .the event was well managed, the activities piqued their interest and they had loads of fun. Thank you Suman for making her day memorable.
This is a library being run by educators and hence it has a very contemporary collection for the young readers who otherwise love their screens better. Also the library has good collection of books for the older generation. A few very unique advantages of this place are 1. a co-working space where parents can work while children browse books, 2. a place which can host birthday parties, 3. very good eateries including the famous Harish Bakery right next door. It is a fantastic initiative to re-inculcate the now dying habit of reading.
