Library

The library occupies a very important place in our school. With its books suited to the interests and aptitude of students of different age group, with its magazines, periodicals, news papers and with its calm and tranquil atmosphere it has a special call to the students who go there and quench their thirst for reading the material which cannot be provided to them in the class room. Here they find an environment which is conductive to the building up of habit of self learning. Our library is the most attractive place in the school so that students are naturally drawn to it. It is housed in a spacious well lighted hall. The book shelves, tables, chairs, reading desks are carefully designed with an eye to artistic effect as well as functional efficiency. As far as possible the open shelf system has been introduced so that students may have free access to books.
