A spacious, fully equipped library is an integral part of the school and provides the perfect environment for reading. Regular library periods ensure easy access to all categories of books and enable the students to develop a love for books right from the Pre – school level. A beehive of activity, students get ample opportunities to browse through the open shelves and love to issue books on a regular basis.
