The Birla Open Minds – Bhagalpur supports the school’s vision of developing “confident, connected, actively involved life-long learners” through its services, collections, and programmes. Learners are at the centre of learning in the library. We give every student the opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding in the library.
The school has a well-stocked library complete with books not only relating to the course material but also of all subjects ranging from general knowledge to science, fiction, astronomy, religion etc. We provide high quality education and an atmosphere furnished with all the necessary tools of learning. The Library is also connected via the Internet to all the major libraries of the world, this allows the students to pursue his / her interest and enquiry to the deepest, not restricting his thinking.
The school library has spread over more than 112 sq. Mtr. with a collection of 4000 plus books which includes reference books, science fictions, novels for boys and girls, tinkle digests, amarchitrakatha, chandamama, wisdom, encyclopaedia and so on. Students are allowed to borrow books and return it within a time frame. Students gift books to the library during their birthdays. The students are asked to write a book review after reading a book and put it on the display board. When other students go through the review they might be motivated to read the book.
An effective school library enhances students’ learning outcomes by providing a range of programs, services and resources which support teaching and learning. It also supports and encourages students’ reading experiences and we at Birla Open Minds – Bhagalpur have a good collection of books covering a wide range of subjects.
