What NCF 2005 says about School Libraries ?

The main recommendations and comments given by the national Curriculum Framework 2005 regarding School Libraries are

“The school library should be conceptualised as an intellectual space where teachers, children and members of the community can expect to find the means to deepen their knowledge and imagination. A system of cataloguing books and other materials available in the library needs to be developed so that children can become self-reliant library users. Apart from books and magazines, a school library should provide access to the new information technology to enable children and teachers to connect with the wider world. In the initial stages of planning, block-level or cluster-level libraries can be set up. In the future, India must move towards equipping every school, irrespective of its level, with a library. In many parts of the country, community libraries are functioning in rural areas, and government libraries exist in many district headquarters. Futuristic planning would require the amalgamation of such structures in a school library network in order to maximise the use of resources. The Raja Ram Mohan Roy Library Foundation can be given additional resources to act as a nodal agency for conceptualising a library network for schools and for monitoring it after it has been created.

In the day-to-day life of a school, the library can serve many different kinds of purposes. Restricting the use of the library to one period a week seldom allows children to cultivate a taste for reading. Facilities are to be provided to allow children to borrow books. Training of teachers in library management and use is required to meet the demands of this situation. Where the size of the school building permits a separate room for the library, it is important to pay attention to creating a positive ethos in this space by providing good lighting and seating arrangements. It should even be possible for a teacher to conduct a class in the library by drawing upon its resources. It could also serve as a place for holding discussions, watching a craftsman from the community giving a demonstration, or listening to a storyteller. Creating such resource libraries to support teachers at the cluster and block levels will complement and strengthen curriculum renewal. Each block could Libraries One period a week to be devoted to library reading. During this time, children sit and read silently in the library. They return the books borrowed the previous week and borrow new ones. If there is no library room, the teacher can bring out books appropriate to the age group and allow children to choose from the set. It is important to let the child choose rather than having the teacher distribute the books. Library books can be brought into the language class. For class projects, children can be asked to look up a reference in the library. Children can be asked to write about the book they have read that week during the language class. Children can be asked to share a story they have. read with the other children in class.
