�Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation, as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn� - Addison

A storehouse of knowledge, Carmel School has a well-stocked library of books, magazines, journals, encyclopedias, atlas, reference books and much more that both students and teachers benefit from.

The library equips students with a life-long learning habit helps develop imagination in their Young Minds.

Comfortable furniture, pindrop silence and a cheerful librarian ever willing to help and guide the reader, provide a conducive environment to read, think and learn effectively.


Knowledge gained through a teacher takes away the ignorance from the pupils and the skills so developed make him/her independent in learning further, one such live example is the Library classes conducted in Primary Classes of Carmel School. Keeping in mind the skills developed in previous classes at each level the pupils are given books accordingly using �step up technique� of skill development.

In each level 40 to 50 different story books are issued. Each section of 40 pupils enjoys 1 library period a week. Story books based on human values, moral values, ethical values, detective stories, informative books based on science, social science and other subjects, comics, mythological stories, encyclopedia, autobiography and so on.

In levels 1 and 2, the children are given short story books where in stories are depicted through animals in simple language. In few periods they are given a chance to narrate the stories that were previously read by them and in few periods the teacher narrates the stories showing related pictures.

In levels 3 and 4, the library period is handled in different ways. Firstly, children are given a chance to choose the books from a lot and the same is exchanged by each other after they read. Then the children are allowed to speak about the story and express their views about it. Secondly, the class is divided into 2, each group is given 20 to 25 copies of same books and the same set is exchanged with the other group in the following weeks. Thirdly, a class is given 40 to 50 copies of the same books containing different stories. At the end of the session, children's comprehension is tested by asking questions where inactive participation is enjoyed by children.

Role play method is one of the technique used to involve children into reading habits and to test their comprehension levels. Children also use dictionaries to find out the meanings; word games, crossword puzzles, are also played utilizing the library period
