There is a universal assumption that man was born innocent or ignorant and should actively seek knowledge. “Information seeking is thus a natural and necessary mechanism of human existence” (Marchionini, 1995). Information is required to satisfy some goal and for that individual may interact with manual information systems such as a library, or with computer-based systems such as the Web (Wilson, 2000). So it is very necessary to have a well-equipped and well-managed library for a good educational institute. Keeping in view the importance of library in an educational setup, special attention is given on the library collection and its services so that library may cater to the needs of all the staff members as well as the student’s community and achieve its aim.
The student who is admitted or a teacher who is recruited in the school is a member of the library. Students of class IV and above are given a Reader’s ticket and are eligible to get a book issued from the library. But the students up to class III may only read or consult the books in the library. Staff members are also legible to get the books issued from the library.
The library has a collection of several books, including a good collection of reference books. The books are on a variety of subjects such as Science, Maths, History, Religion, English/Hindi literature, and fiction. Instead of books, the library also has a vast collection of audio-visual material. It has a collection of CD/DVD’s. Our library purchases 5 daily newspapers and 13 perodicals. By the help of this collection, the library is fulfilling the needs of its members. The student members are issued one book against the membership ticket for a period of 7 days. An overdue charge of Rs1/- per book per day is charged after the due date.
Open to members from 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. on all working days except Sundays and holidays. It also remains open for full time during Dussehera break, Winter break and Summer vacations.
