Guwahati: In disheartening news for the book lovers, the mobile library in Nagaon which has witnessed many ups and downs in the socio-political arena for the last several years is now in a dilapidated state.
The mobile library, set up on an old vehicle has been standing like a static object near the Nagaon District Library.
Local people alleged that the library, which served book lovers in the district once, took this form due to the apathy of the concerned government department.
