Our School Library
A library is a storehouse of knowledge. It satisfies our thirst for the unseen and the unknown. A library is part and parcel of an educational institution. No educational institution is complete without a library. Like all other educational institutions, our school has a big library. Our school is a three-storeyed building. The library is situated on the ground floor. Lots of knowledge could be acquired from a library and our school library has a great collection of books, which makes this a lot easier for students to gather information.
Our school library is in a large spacious room. It is housed in a separate building. It is well ventilated. It has eight windows and three doors. There is a good sitting arrangement here. Fifty students can read at a time. It is divided into two parts. In one part there is a reading room and a center for issuing books. In the other parts, there are twenty-five shelves where the books are neatly arranged. In the library, there are tables set with chairs around. The students sit on the chairs and read books and make notes.
Our school has a rich collection. There are about ten thousand books on different subjects. They include many reference books on different subjects. There are some rare books on history and culture in our library. There are many journals and magazines in our school library. There are some rare collections and classical books. These reference books help the students to know more which is beyond their knowledge. Only the students can read and borrow books from the library.
There is a qualified librarian to help the students. A student can borrow two or three books at a time and keep them at the house for a week. There is a big reading room. It is well furnished. We have a librarian who keeps a track of all the books that go in and out of the library. When we take the help of a catalog, the librarian at once helps us. Our school librarian comes in the morning. He keeps the books in perfect order. We are issued cards. We can borrow a book from the library. We are to return the borrowed books. If anybody does not, he is fined.
Our library is very helpful for us. A library widens the mental horizon of a student. It helps students refer notes that they are looking for and helps in cultivating a reading habit too. It broadens his outlook and deepens his knowledge. Our school library is a great attraction for us. We are really proud of it. It is not possible for a student to travel the world around him. A book makes him acquainted with the whole world and it is a library which contains these books. Again it is impossible for a student to buy all books. So he can manage the book from the library and derive much benefit. It is so quiet that one could really enjoy reading and also study peacefully and learn a lot of great things in the world.
