Divandarreh, a Mountainous Region in Iran to Equip Barber Shops & Beauty Salons with Libraries!

January 9,2009

Persian: The Tehran Times Culture Desk reports today that all barber shops and beauty salons in the western city of Divandarreh, a mountainous region located in Kordestan Province, will be equipped with libraries in the near future, to promote a serious book-reading culture in the city.

The town's Governor, Abdolsalam Karimi has offered sound reasons for this innovative idea.

The first being that since more people frequent these vanity places than anywhere else, bookcases would most certainly prove a valuable companion during waiting time.

Of course, the books would be especially tailored to suit young people since they proved to be frequent customers. The Governor also added that by selecting specific titles and subjects, literature could symbolise a subtle but essential guidance in influencing the younger Iranian generation's tendencies towards Western fashion and models.
