Hippocampus came alive in the summer of 2003, with the setting up of a Children’s Experience Centre in Koramangala. The idea was to create a fun place with books and activities that kept children coming back for more and so, spread the love for reading. The collection of books for children was the biggest attraction then and continues to be so now, with nearly 80 new books being added every month. But, children come for various reasons – the cheerful ambience, friendly staff, fun activities on weekends, clubs, workshops and summer camps.
