Brainvilla: One more library in Bangalore

Category: Bangalore ashish sheth @ 11:09

Good news for all the book lovers in the CV Raman nagar and Kagadaspura area in Bangalore. Just yesterday I came across this library called Brainvilla at 6th Cross, Kagadaspura. It is just started and a small library offering Books and toys. One can borrow books and toys for 15 days and also can buy them as they have all the new copies of books and toys.

The library claims to have almost 2500 books (and counting) on almost all topics like fiction, self-help, reference, children's books. Although I am quiet disappointed as they don't have computer and IT related books as Bangalore is IT city and almost majority of the readers will be Software professionals.

They have 3 different plan availbale in 3 different categories where minimum is a one month plan for Rs. 149. However, I found the tariff at little higher compared to other library like British Library at Kasturba Road. One can opt for a monthly plan which is minimum or a six month or a yearly plan. All this plans are available in Silver, Golden and Platinum categories where one can borrow two books, two books and one toy, two books and two toys respectively.

Currently their website is under construction but once it is up they are also planning to take orders from the website and give home delivery of the books. That is really cool service they are providing as not many libraries deliver book at doorsteps.

If you are searching for a library in bangalore then here is the list of all libraries apart from Brainvilla in Kagadaspura.

Update: their website is up and now you can book your books/toys online also. They also offer home delivery/pickup options.

Hi Ashish,

Thanks for letting us know about Brainvilla. I visited the place recently and have taken a membership with them.
I took annual membership, which came at 124/- per month...I didn't find it expensive at all, considering the home delivery and online booking facility...
Also, the store manager mentioned that collection is now 3500+ books and they have now about 250 members....which is a good thing...
They are also planning to start their new branch very soon....
BTW, I stay in Thippasandra, so I am happy to have access to library whose catalogue is available online and who provide home delivery...cool stuff...
