Book fair opens at Commerce College
CHITRAL, Oct 14: A book fair organized by the National Book Foundation (NBF) opened at the Govt Commerce College Chitral on Monday.
This is for the first time that the NBF has arranged such a fair in the district of Chitral. A large number of people, mostly students and teachers, visited the book fair. A variety of books have been put on display and different companies offered reduced prices on books on various subjects.
Book fairs will also be held in the towns of Booni and Drosh. The book fair was opened by officials of the district government and the school administration in the presence of the NBF managing director Murad Ali.
Addressing the opening ceremony, the speakers said Chitral lacked basic facilities in the field of education and the holding of the book fair was a right step to provide an opportunity to the students to purchase books on affordable prices.—S. Nazir Hussain
