Library detail

A good book is a good friend

Researchers have demonstrated that school libraries have a positive impact on student achievement. More than 60 studies have been conducted in 19 U.S. states and one Canadian province. The major finding of these studies is that students with access to a well-supported school library media program with a qualified school library media specialist, scored higher on reading assessments regardless of their socio-economic statuses¬Ě.

Johnites library is a "treasure house of knowledge".

1 Library of 35' x 20' dimensions located on the Ground Floor of the Main Building. It contains 12,000 books with 31 wooden racks/almirahs for safe custody of books. Faculty for reading in library for forty students at the time is available.

Every class is allotted a library period in a week to enable students to enhance their knowledge. It is also a "time off" for enlightenment. A very good source of reference for both the teachers and students.

The School Library is well equipped and it is expected that each student should make the best use of it. Many important periodicals, Magazines, newspapers etc. are provided so that the students try to acquire knowledge from different sources.

Perfect silence and discipline is to be maintained in the Library. All the books are to be returned to the Library on the due date. Failing which, a fine of Re. 20/- per day will be charged. In case any Library material is lost or damaged its price will be recovered from the defaulter. All Library books should be returned before the commencement of Examinations.
