Essay On My School Library
A library means a house of books where a good collection of thousands of books on various subjects is available. Every school consists of a library. Our school library consists of around 5000 books. They have been systematically arranged in big steel cupboards with proper numbering. All leading newspapers in Marathi, Hindi, and English are also made available in our library. Moreover, various monthly and weekly magazines and periodicals are also available.
We visit the library once a week. A separate provision has been made in our school timetable for this. The librarian helps us in selecting and locating the books that we want.
A big centrally located table, some chairs, and benches are kept there. The chairs are reserved for the teachers and the benches for the students. The reading hall is spacious with big-sized windows. This has made the library well-ventilated. in
The library is open during our regular school timings. During our exams, that is in February and March, it is kept open till 10 p.m. and also on Sundays. Students can sit there and study in a calm and comfortable atmosphere. Every student can borrow two books at a time. The borrowed book has to be returned or renewed within 15 days. But the teachers can keep books for a longer duration and no restriction is imposed.
The students are not allowed to speak loudly inside the library. It is compulsory to keep the magazines or the newspapers at a proper place after we finish reading them. The library consists of many copies of regular school books. This facility is very beneficial for poor students who cannot afford to buy books. The first three rank holders of every class are supplied with textbooks free of cost. Some copies are reserved for underprivileged students.
The librarian is assisted by an assistant librarian. He is very supportive and kind in nature. Our Principal visits the library every week. I am very proud of my school library. Our school continues procuring newly published books every year. I am sure, such a nice library is hardly available in any school. I have developed a habit of reading books only because of our school library.
