My school has one of the best libraries in town. It consists of two large rooms on one side of school building. It has large windows and is thus airy and well lit. There are long, gleaming tables with chairs on all sides. Chairs have also been placed near the windows for comfortable reading.
In one room the books of general interest have been stocked, while the other contains newspapers, journals and reference and other text books. Our library contains nearly 10,000 books on every subject-literature, history, science, mathematics etc. are some of them. There are also novels, classics and encyclopaedias etc. Our schools subscribes to some of the best newspapers, journals and magazines from all over the world.
Every class has one library period in a week. We can issue any book we like, except for the reference books. Fines are imposed for spoiling the book or for returning it late. During exams we can sit for longer periods in the labrary. The librarian is a well trained king lady.
Books can really prove to be the best friends of man. They can increase his knowledge as provide pleasurable reading. But we must never write on them or tear their pages. The library then will become our favourite place in the school.
