A school without a library is unthinkable these days. It must have books on various subjects, newspapers, journals and magazines. Students, those especially who want to add to their knowledge, go to the library in their vacant periods and study. It adds to their knowledge.
My school also has a big library. It is housed in a big hall. There are many almirahs in it. Each almirah has books on one subject only. There is a card for every book. Books are arranged according to their numbers.
Every student applies for a card and gets it. The librarian issues books against the card. No student can keep a book for more than fourteen days. Defaulters are fined.
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. No body is permitted to talk to disturb others.
Every class has one library period once a week. Students go to the library in the period and study.
The library also has reference and text books. 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.
Books add a lot to our knowledge. These are our best friends.
