Senior volunteer of the library, Asuni Khamblai outlined how volunteerism was the core of the youth library movement. Addressing the students and faculty, Coordinator of Lohit Youth Libraries, S Mundayoor elaborated on how reading sensitizes the sociologists to evolve as social activists and how empathy for reading deprived should be the prime value to be practiced by college and university students.
