Reading Culture

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body

- Joseph Addison

The school has two air-conditioned libraries– one tailored for students up to Std IV and the other for those up to Std XII (ISC). Both libraries are meticulously designed, with an enriching ambience complemented by required infrastructure and well-designed furniture.

The secondary section library spans nearly 1800 sq. ft., and has a dedicated e-research section equipped with 20 computers, alongside a comprehensive collection of approximately 17,000 books. Meanwhile, the primary section library, covers an area of approximately 900 sq. ft., houses a vast collection of over 18,000 books.

Dedicated librarians conduct many engaging activities aimed at promoting a culture of reading among students, and transforming the library into a welcoming place that students and staff alike look forward to visit.

Librarians at Shishuvan annually organise the “Shishuvan Reading Challenge”, a comprehensive programme that goes beyond typical library visits and includes workshops, book reviews, and various engaging activities aimed at fostering a love for reading among students.

Additionally, each class from Junior KG to Standard IV maintains its own class library, which is enhanced with voluntary contributions from students. This setup allows students to access books, newspapers, and magazines during their break times, encouraging continuous reading habits.

Students in Standard I to IV benefit from dedicated 'Library with Teacher' sessions integrated into their school schedule alongside regular library visits. During these sessions, students and teachers embark on a collective reading journey of a novel selected for the class.
