We have seen libraries on wheels, but now a camel library has been spreading knowledge among children in the Turbat district of Balochistan.
Syeda Basharat Kazmi, the camel library manager, claims that this is one of the unique mobile libraries in Pakistan. The library also distributes free books among the less privileged children.
The library is operated by non-governmental organizations, the Alif Laila Book Bus Society and Female Education Trust.

Set up in 1978, the Alif Laila Book Bus Society’s fundamental objective is to evolve solutions to Pakistan’s educational problems and find strategically useful paths to 100% literacy and educational modernization within the given socio-economic constraints.
The foundation has made Interactive Learning Aids for Early Childhood Education.
Likewise, It has developed free resources, and the unique feature not offered by any organization in Pakistan is its library on wheels.
It is relevant to note that in 2019, the Pakistan Air Force Women Association (PAFWA) introduced four mobile libraries to bring books closer to the children in the form of a mobile library.
The President of the Pakistan Air Force Women Association, Begum Tazeen Mujahid, handed over four mobile libraries to PAF Bases in Lahore, M.M. Alam (Mianwali), Masroor (Karachi), and Air Headquarters in Islamabad.
