Alternative Realities, an organisation that works to create interaction between social classes, has launched street libraries called Homeless Library – HoL! These libraries are located in Mahim, Dadar and Bandra in Mumbai and work three times a week. They have been initiated to create creative and fun spaces where homeless citizens can utilize their free time. The libraries cater to people across all age groups and operate on pavements. They stock comics, storybooks, novels and magazines in English, Marathi and Hindi.
