The School Library

Today education is no longer a system of ‘cramming and filling students minds with information but rather it is a process of self-discovery encouraging them to learn on their own. It is in this backdrop that today school libraries have acquired importance. Education today is much more than mere textbook education. It calls for wider understanding, and requires much more reference. Moreover a good library encourages students to seek knowledge on their own. Libraries are storehouses of knowledge waiting to be used. It is said, “What is taught is not caught but what is read remains”. In this context the school library plays a significant role in the present-day educational system. It is an integral part of the modern school setup. The school has a well set-up library. It consists of a large hall filled with shelves, bookstands, computer, Television and furniture.
