Library is the center of knowledge in a school, it should provide the pupils additional knowledge through reading books, magazines and other materials for research.
But a library can only serve its purpose if it can offer sufficient materials for the one using it, besides it should be conducive for learning.
A library becomes useless if no one is coming in to use it. It’s a sad thing that pupils nowadays seem no longer interested in using the library even though they have vacant period to do so.
First, the school must ensure that the library is attractive enough so that pupils find it enjoyable using it. Second, it should have sufficient and variety of books to choose from. Third, teachers should always remind the pupils the importance of going and using the library.
Its high time to look back and find out what went wrong. It’s about time to reconsider things. We believe that it’s not too late to make our library a haven for learning. Remember, reading is the father of all learning.
Of course, it’s a little bit expensive rehabilitating our school library, from its physical structure to its reading materials and equipment, but its the right time to do it. Let us invest in something that can bring additional knowledge to our pupils.
