ISLAMABAD (APP) National Book Foundation (NBF) has established a book club in Children Hospital at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) to delight and educate the children admitted there for treatment. An official of the foundation told this news agency that the book club with over 700 books of childrens interest was opened in the East Medical and Surgical Wards. The hospital administration extended full support to the foundation by providing space for the club, he told. The collection contains books on religion, science and fairy tales of eminent writers. National Book Foundation (NBF) is also working to establish children book clubs in remote areas of the country to promote reading habits. The clubs will not require much resources as they are being set up in far flung areas where already collections of some books exist, the official said. The objective behind establishing book clubs is to provide reading environment to the sick children, their parents, relatives and attendants. The club is the first of its kind in any hospital and a number of more children book clubs in various hospitals are also in the pipeline.
