It is believed that books are a window to the world. This underscores the importance that a library has in leading a young learner into that cozy corner, which is the school library. An array of books and journals covering a range of subjects, are there for students to gain insight and understanding. The reading material available provide food for thought and imagination—for both fiction and fact, rub shoulders with each other, to grab the attention of the reader. A display of the latest books and editions of magazines, shares space with a stand on which daily newspapers are put up, to entice eyeballs to browse through the latest happenings in the world around. The rustle of paper, the feel of a word, the turn of a phrase and the layers of meaning in idiom- certainly cast their spell upon the young learner, paving their way forward to become avid readers!
The narcotic of just tumbling into the word of print and paper, has seen gaining its hold on the imagination and interest of the each inhabitant of the school with the movement DEAR—Drop Everything And Read---and the bell that heralds the time to do so, is as welcome to the ears of students as the bell for their recess---a scramble to quickly delve into the precious book they have carried to school for this magic moment, is easily seen as one of the most joyful moments in the day.
