A School Library

A school without a library is unthinkable these days. It has books on various subjects, newspapers, journals, and magazines. Students, especially who want to broaden their knowledge, go to the library in their vacant periods and study.

My school has an up-to-date library. It is quite big. It is housed in the separate room. There are nearly twenty-five bookshelves. They are placed along the walls of the room. The shelves have glass pane. Besides textbooks, the almirahs have books on travels, biographies, history, and geography.

On one side of the library hall there are long tables and benches. Students sit there and read newspapers, journals, and magazines; some take down notes. Nobody is permitted to talk to disturb others.

The library also has reference and textbooks. These are meant for studying in the library only. The calm and quiet atmosphere of the library helps the students to work attentively.

The school librarian is a trained and qualified person and well-experienced. He gives advice to students on the choice of books. He is an expert in his work. He understands his duty well and is of great help to students. We find him busy all the time. He advises students not to spoil books by scribbling in them or tearing off the pages.

A librarian is in charge of the school library. The library is always open on all the days of the week. The students get the books directly from the librarian. The books are well graded. The students find no difficulty in the selection of the books. The students read the books during the week. They return them the following week. Nobody is allowed to keep a book for more than two weeks.

The school library is a good way to develop general knowledge. The students beget studious habits. It creates a taste for book after school life. 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.
