Memari, Purba Bardhaman
How are you? You have not written anything for a pretty long time. Hope you are all well by the grace of Almighty.
Today I am writing this letter to tell you how visiting a public library will benefit you. Visiting a library will help you to come out of the four walls of the house and give you a chance to get acquainted with many people. As it is impossible to get all the information from a single book. So, visiting a library will help you the most.There you can get a lot of reference books for your study.Alongside you will get a lot of story books. You can also find at least two dailies which will improve your general knowledge. A library will boost you with the knowledge of recent inventions, current affairs, government policies etc.
So do visit the library of your locality as frequently as possible. No more today, more when we meet.Convey my respect to your parents.
Your loving friend
