Understanding School Libraries

Library is part of your school’s teaching and learning environment. It provides resources and services that support students, staff and families. Our library’s resources, physical space, and staff have tremendous potential to make a difference to students’ achievement, educational equity, social and emotional well-being

Why school libraries matter

School libraries matter because they can help every member of your school community gain new knowledge, skills and dispositions for learning and personal development that they will use throughout their lives.

Teaching and Learning Programmes

The school has a fully equipped library with a reference section, a reading room and a seminar area. It is stocked with plenty of books in various categories and a number of periodicals and newspapers. The books have been classified according to the Dewey decimal classification. The unique feature of the library is the 'Open Access System' which enables students to access any book freely. The library is also equipped with a number of educational audio/video CDs/DVDs on curriculum based topics and general studies.

Purpose of the school library

The purpose of our school library is to help every member of your school community — students, staff and families gain new knowledge, skills and dispositions for learning and personal development that they will use throughout their lives. Your school library encourages curiosity, innovation and problem-solving. It is integral to the cultural and social life of the school. The school library is a central point for all kinds of reading, cultural activities, access to information, knowledge building, deep thinking and lively discussion. Research shows the significant difference well-resourced libraries can make to student learning outcomes.

Library guiding documents

"We hope that libraries will always exist as places for learners to find information, resources, services, and instruction. But formats, technologies, learning needs, and our schools are evolving. And so are students themselves. Our entire information and communication landscapes have shifted — and this shift will only continue."
