Libraries are treasure - troves. Books, it is said, are man's best companions. Ruskin compares books to king's treasures in his famous book 'Sesame and Lilies'
The school library provides information and ideas that are fundamental to functioning successfully in today's information and knowledgebased society. The school library equips students with lifelong learning skills and develops the imagination, enabling them to live as responsible citizens. Without a library, a school is like body without soul.
Our school has a big library. It is situated in a separate building and is surrounded by a green grassy lawn. It has a large reading room and two big rooms for storing books. There is another small room. It is meant exclusively to store newspapers, journal and magazines, which are there on separate stands and papers, where us the books are arranged subjectwise in neat shelves. The name of the subject and that of the language are written on the almirahs.
