People generally go to libraries seeking information and knowledge, and sometimes for leisure. But what if you could catch up on reading while waiting for a haircut?
Thirty barbershops in Lalmonirhat’s Aditmari upazila are providing that opportunity. The “library-barbershops” are an initiative of Sarpukur Jubo Forum Pathagar at Tipar Bazar.

Jamal Hossain, an honours student, first took the initiative to establish a barbershop as a library as there was no place for readers in the area.
