Answer: A library is a storehouse of knowledge and it supplies different kinds of books and journals to the readers. It is a part and parcel of a school and it is useful to students in many ways. Any student can read books freely in a library. Our school has a library and it is the source of different kinds of books and journals. The library has a good collection of books. We go to our taste and choice. There is a librarian who is in charge of our library. He helps us in many ways. He guides us in the choice of books. We should try out to make the best use of the library.
Our School Library
My school, like all other schools, has a library. It is in a part of the teacher’s room. A partition of wooden rails separates it from the part where the teachers sit and take a rest. Ours is not a very big library! Only a few tall bookcases are enough for the books. But the books were so carefully chosen that they serve the students and the teacher’s purpose. There are books of all kinds, such as novels, dramas, etc.; but they are all selected ones. My school library has no full-time librarian; an assistant teacher works part-time as a librarian. He manages and looks after the library very well. He issues and takes back books. He chooses new books in consultation with the headmaster and other teachers. Sometimes he works over-time to make entries into the accession registers. His care and hard work have made my school library a very useful one.
Our School Library
We have a school library. A librarian manages the library. It contains many books. The books are specially kept for the use of the students and teachers. We are not satisfied with the textbooks only. So, we need other books for pleasure and gaining general knowledge. The taste of the students varies. Their liking for subjects is not the same either. Some like books on history, some on story or novel, some on science fiction, some on an adventure, while others on poetry. So, our school library has all kinds of books for the satisfaction of us.
