About Kathaavali

Growing up listening to the enchanting stories told by grandparents, falling asleep with the bedtime stories, being loved and admired by parents at the childish attempts of story-making, the first library card, book

rents and exchanges, gifting & receiving books, hiding secret messages inside the books, storing that

special photograph or a flower or a leaf skeleton amongst the pages, escaping into a dreamland hugging 

a half-open book – we all have some ‘book’ stories to share and memories to cherish.


Through our little library, we want to rekindle the love for reading the paperbacks, help you re-live some of those special moments, add more to your stories and create memories for you.


If you love books, then we have already established a connection because Kathaavali is a place for all book lovers.


Thank you for joining our community. Let’s all help each other rediscover the Magic of Reading.

Kathaavali is not just a book rental service but also our tiny effort towards the causes we believe in - 'reduce,

reuse, and recycle', and therefore our small attempt in helping the planet. When you rent (and not buy a new book

for a one time read), you become a major element of this effort.


Also check our store for handmade art & crafts, handmade/upcycled/recycled products. We thank you in advance for being a part of our tiny attempt :)

How Kathaavali Works

Love Reading? But no time to head to the library? No worries. Rent a book from the comfort of your home/office

and get the book delivered to you.


To rent the next title, call or drop us a message, we’ll pick up the previous book and deliver your next book. 

Easy right? So go ahead and pick your book!

Dr Deepa Patil

I came across this (Nostalgia) website. The intro message, the little shop, and the website itself is something that I would describe as 
Super focused - "to the point".

I really loved the greeting cards. The print quality is perfect. Colors have come out really well. I loved them, especially the personalized message and the wrapping with ribbon. Loved them!
