The students showed enthusiasm to peruse and buy books of their interests. KCA Principal Dr.Daljit Singh said almost all the publishers from the city took keen interest in displaying their books and students found the experience intellectually stimulating. KCGC joint secretary Ajmeir Singh Heir, Librarian Sukhdev Singh, Faculty members and staff were present on the occasion in large number.
