Uses of School Library
Books are a store-house of knowledge and a library is a store-house of books. Library forms an important part of any school. It provides the students with a place where they can sharpen their reading skills and enhance their knowledge. As a library is divided into different sections based on different subjects, it becomes easy for students to locate books of their interest. Students can also get books issued, to read at home. Different newspapers, magazines and periodicals are also available in libraries. Usually, libraries remain open even after school hours. The calm and quiet atmosphere of the school library is suitable for studies. Every student should make the maximum use of school library to enhance his knowledge.
I think the presence of a school library is a vital component of a students education. In the UK there was recently some talk of many schools considering closing their libraries to cut the running costs of the school. I was amazed to hear on the news that in the UK a school does not have to legally have a school library and that it is an optional extra, decided upon my the person controlling the decision making process. It is, however, a legal requirement that every prison and youth offending institute in the UK has its own library. It seems to be a ridiculous notion that those housed in such institutes are given this basic right when students being educated in schools are not. I think it would be a much fairer and commonsense practice if access to a library was a basic right in both cases.
