The school library is for the use of students and teachers of the school alone. It is a part of every school.
My school has an up-to-date library. It is housed in the separate room. There are nearly fifteen almirahs. They are placed along the walls of the room. The almirahs have glass panes. Besides text books, the almirahs have books on travels, biographies, history and geography.
The books are arranged subject wise. There are Catalogues for each almirah. One almirah has books on teaching and reference books. They are only for teachers.
A librarian is the incharge of the school library. There is a class library system in the school. The library is always open on all the days of the week. The students do not get the books directly from the librarian. Once a month the class teacher goes to the library. He selects four to five sets of books for the use of the class. The sets are well graded. The teacher finds no difficulty in the selection of the books. Each set has thirty books. The teacher issues the books once a week to the students in the class library period. He is expected to read these sets. The students read the books during the week. They return them the following week. No boy is allowed to keep a book for more than two weeks.
The library has a reading room. It is full of tables and chairs. The newspapers, magazines and periodicals are placed on the big tables daily for the use of the students. The walls of the room are well decorated with good mottos and simple paintings. The mottos tell us the use of different books, newspapers and magazines. The poor students make use of the library books. Nearly ten thousand books are always in the library.
The school library is a good way to develop general knowledge. The students beget studious habits. It creates a taste for books after school life. Biographies form character of the students. The library creates love for books among the weak boys. It gives opportunities to make best use of our leisure time. It gives us day-to-day information of the world.
A school library is a treasure house of knowledge. It creates love for books among the boys.
