A library is a place that has a good collection of books and educational materials. It is a place where one can get access to various books and informative materials. Schools are provided with libraries to benefit the students with reading and knowledge. The library is a storehouse of knowledge for the students and staff in the schools. It is necessary for children to visit the library when scheduled. It provides them with the knowledge of different topics and developing vocabulary. It also helps in the overall development of the student.
About my School Library
I am studying in one of the missionary schools. My school has two libraries for students. One is meant for the students from kindergarten to class 5th. The other one is for the students from 6th to 12th students. Both libraries are well built. I am studying in class 8th. My library is beautifully designed with lively walls and interiors. It has windows all around making the room airy. We seat in groups according to the seating arrangements. We call our librarian a sister. She distributes us different books to study. She takes a 15 min class on health and hygiene.
We study various books in our library during our library period. We can also borrow books for studying. I use to borrow novels and several storybooks. I love reading the Enid Blyton series. There is also a facility for searching and reading books online. We have a space called a cyber hub in our library itself. We can read books online and also print them. There is a creative space in our library where we can paste our written poems or small stories. Many students paste their poems and drawings over there.
Arrangement of Books and Informative Materials in our Library
Each student during the library period can read two books. We can get the books by selecting them from the almirah. The catalog is mentioned on the almirah for different subjects. It helps us in locating the books we require. There is an almirah that contains the books only to be read by the teachers. Along with books, we can also read magazines, newspapers, and news digests. They are kept on the big table which is placed in the center of the library.
I have a habit of reading novels and storybooks so I also visit the library in my free periods. It is a place that provides me with complete silence and to read peacefully.
