A school library is a store house of knowledge
Information is the heartbeat of meaningful learning in schools. At TWGS libraries we strive to create a learning environment that empowers students to connect with, engage with and utilize information in meaningful and purposeful ways. Fundamental to this learning environment is the development of a school wide information service where learners have opportunities to access multiple sources and forms of information and the appropriate technologies to do so.
The superbly well stocked library houses a vast collection of books, journals, periodical, newspapers, digital sources, resources and services on a wide range of topics. The endeavor is on inculcating the reading habits in children, giving a free rein to their imagination and minds in comfortable and conducive ambience. The Reference Sections supports the curriculum and beyond. The advanced digital library and an E-library Section is the response to need of the times expanding the horizons of all learning beyond limits.
There is Campus-wide broadband E-connectivity with Wi-Fi for anywhere anytime computer learning. All students have supervised access. There is a Hi-Tech E-Library where students have access to online encyclopedias and reference material in addition to a wide gamut of books & magazines.
The library is the 'heart of the school'. School libraries play an active and leading role in the educational process, where it helps pupils’ continue education effectively so they can learn by themselves. School libraries bear the slogan “Learn how to teach yourself and search for information”. School library is the primary centre for good citizenship. It is the foundation for university education and specialized learning. Every child with an average intelligence and ability starts taking keen interest in knowing things with curiosity and right through the schooling period s/he on the way to acquire knowledge and enrich his/her faculties. It is therefore essential to familiarize with the library, which would provide them quality – reading materials. We can say that an excellent educational programm cannot be developed without the provision and support of a well- planned school library.
