School Libraries Matter !

Library is the place where things happen !

School library has been considered as the heart of the school, since all the academic and co-curricular activities begin from there. From the preparation of an assignment on global warming to getting information regarding the attire of the annual day performers, everyone needs the library.

The quest of a child for knowledge starts from his/her interaction with people, places and ideas. The school library is the meeting point of ideas. Great minds with open arms are staying there in the form of books and multimedia.They are always ready to clear everyone’s doubts and help them to prosper.

Think and Act

The state of our school libraries is not a matter of pride. Most of them are shadow libraries.Some have books that are kept in closed shelves with keys, whose owner may be a fellow teacher with lots of burden on his shoulders.He is directed to spend his extra time (if there) for the sake of poor library.

Yes, we need change.

Every school library must have its own library programmes.There should be professionally trained librarians.There must be continuous evaluation of its stock and services to analyze whether that cope with the ever changing needs of the teaching and learning communities.

To make the users skilled information users and life long learners, the school library media centres must change.
