The Importance of a Good School Library

Education Information

If you think of a school library as a cozy, welcoming space where students can read quietly or browse through a rich collection of texts, you are only partially correct. The fact that school libraries are places for storage and quiet is only one small part of their purpose. They are, in the broadest sense, the backbone of learning activity. Much of what goes on each day draws from or occurs in or around the resources and space within the school library.

Here are the top 10 benefits of a school library:

1.A school library is meant to supports the students in their studies.

2.Students can borrow books and take them home for further research.


3.Apart of text books, students often need reference books to prepare notes.

4.Reading helps the child to broaden his views over the subject. He starts to think in a new dimension altogether.

5.Since the environment at the school library is peaceful, students can study at the library without any disturbances. 

6.In schools, students are often given tasks to finish after school hours. They can finish those in libraries so that they can spend more time leisurely with family.


7.Other than academic books, the fiction and non fiction literature helps the child's mental and emotional development.

8.The academic magazines and periodicals keep the student aware of the latest development around the world.

9.A library opens a world of wisdom for the student. A student can build his confidence by going through the books of his interest.

10.A school library promotes building a knowledge-driven community for the future.
