We are running a free based school ( Sampanna Jeevan Vidyalaya) From this academic year i.e. 2016-2017. It is till fifth standard with a strength of 60 underprivileged kids strictly based on CBSE pattern. We hired 7 qualified teachers with good analytical and reasoning ability, also a small library with 200+books, even a good transport facility.
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. They instill in the young minds, the habit of reading, which will stand them in good stead in the future. The reference section helps them to clear their doubts while the reading room makes them conversant with the current affairs and day-to-day events of their country as well as of the whole world. Thus, a good library is an asset. It widens student’s mind, improves their knowledge, clears their doubts and instills in them the habit of reading. Libraries help to make learning a self-discovery and a personal venture
