During the inaugural ceremony of the 1st Karachi Festival of Books and Libraries, President Dr. Arif Alvi emphasized the critical importance of preserving knowledge and literature in digital formats. Held in Karachi, this festival serves as a platform to celebrate the written word and promote literacy.

In his address, President Alvi underscored that the future of our nation hinges on education and knowledge. As technology continues to advance, he highlighted the need to adapt and embrace digital solutions. The transition from physical books to digital repositories ensures wider accessibility and ease of dissemination.

The President acknowledged that information is now readily accessible, thanks to the digital age. However, he also expressed concern about the significant educational gap. Shockingly, over twenty million children remain out of school, posing a formidable challenge for Pakistan’s progress.

In summary, President Arif Alvi’s call for digitizing book collections reflects a forward-looking vision—one that recognizes the transformative power of technology in shaping education and fostering a well-informed society.
