Renowned American educator and ex-First Lady of the United States of America, Laura Bush once famously said,
“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.”
The Union Christian Public School takes pride in its well-stocked library comprising of excellent fiction books for children of all ages, reference volumes, and appropriate magazines and newspapers in order to expand the student’s imagination and language.
The school follows an open access system for students, enabling students to browse through the available resources for their projects and assignments, or to simply spend time there for the sheer pleasure of reading. The circulation counter offers a wide selection of books, which are issued out for the students to take home and read. The reference counter consists of encyclopedias and the other reference materials on various subjects, which can be freely used within the library premises.
Our school gives so much importance to developing a thirst for books and knowledge, that each grade has a library period on their timetable once a week. This allows them to read books of their choice during their school day. The library currently houses over 2000 books, and reference books, apart from 12 magazine subscriptions.
