"The statement that reading is a good habit is a self- obvious truth. Man is not a mere child of instincts. It is brainpower that makes a difference between him and animals. Naturally a love for books ought to be his natural inclination." (Roy 2013)
To induce good reading habits, the reader must be made to feel that what is good in a book is really so. It is easier to improve one’s judgment because it is a question of reason or logic. But it is difficult and a painstaking affair to improve one’s taste, because it is a question of feeling. But merely saying that a good book is really good will not does. One has to involve the reader in healthy debates or discussions.
A taste for the reading good books once formed cannot be so easily dislodged. As such the culture of good reading habit calls for a kind of cooperation in which the authorities, the teachers as well as the parents, must be involved.
A school library is a place in the school where vast collections of academic books are kept. These books are made available to the students to increase their knowledge and understanding on various subjects. A school library plays a great role in the life of a student. It is the store house of knowledge. In a library, students can find books on various subjects such as history, geography, environment, political science, literature, etc. A school library exhibits positive impact on the academic achievement of the student. Students can perform better during examination by reading various books.
