Raju unveils new NBT logo

On the 56th Foundation Day of National Book Trust (NBT), human resource development minister M Pallam Raju unveiled the new logo of the trust and also inaugurated the newly-created Children’s Library on NBT campus.

In his address, Raju laid emphasis on creating interesting spaces in form of children libraries in all parts of the country which may help them to be a part of the rich legacy of Indian culture and literature. He also said that the new logo, developed by National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, is in tune with today’s changing environment.

Talking on books and reading, he laid emphasis on digitisation of books and dissemination of literature and information in all possible forms. He said NBT should explore resources to achieve the objective of promoting books and reading.

Speaking on the occasion, eminent sociologist and Prof Andre Beteille highlighted the importance of reading and writing in general. Beteille said, ‘As reading and writing developed it also divided the population into those who had monopolised the benefits of reading and writing and those who didn’t.’
