LongLongAgo.in is a children books rental site that allows its subscribers to browse through the catalogue of books and get one of them delivered to their home at a time. The website is currently offering its services in Bangalore, Chennai and Coimbatore. LongLongAgo.in has already attracted over 100 subscribers since its launch on May 27, 2010.

“The concept of library itself is quite under-served and the options for children are a rarity or very limited to certain locations in India. We wanted to bring the best available children books from around the world to children in India,” Hariraj Narasimhamurthi, co-founder, LongLongAgo.in, has told AlooTechie.

Hariraj Narasimhamurthi has further said, “Around 60 to 70 per cent of our collection comes from UK, US and Canada. We are also adding quality books from local publishers in many Indian languages.” According to Narasimhamurthi, an interesting thing about the website is that it doesn’t have any specified lending time and the subscribers can keep a book as long as they wish.

LongLongAgo.in charges users for subscriptions under two heads, called the Rabbit plan and the Zebra plan. Under the Rabbit plan, the website offers to send 4-6 books in a month (2 to 3 books per shipment ) for a monthly fee of Rs 199, while under the Zebra plan one can order 6-10 books in a month (3 to 5 books per shipment) for Rs 299 per month. Besides the monthly fees, the users also need to pay a one-time registration fee of Rs 250.
