OUR VILLAGE LIBRARY
We have a small library in our village.
There are about one thousand books in it.
Except for a few English books, all the books in the library are in Oriya.
Most of them are sets of the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, and other holy books.
The villagers are very fond of reading these books.
We get some newspapers and magazines for our library reading room.
After their hard work, the villagers gather there in the evening to read books and newspapers.
Each villager pays one rupee a month for the library.
The government also pays five hundred rupees every year for new books.
I work as the librarian to lend books to the villagers and to collect them.
