More than just books and banks of computers, library is still a place where students gather to explore, interact, and imagine. Library adds value to student communities and serves as cultural center for our students from different parts of country. Library services can be divided into three very broad categories: (1) library as community builder (2) library as community centers for diverse populations, and (3) library as champion of youth.
Library communities encourage students interested in community services and cultural outreach to make connections with each other, share ideas, and build partnerships. Libraries build citizens. They educate individuals and foster thoughtful communities.
Library provides a platform to gather community members and encourages them to talk about new trends in different industries.
A good library is like a solid rock on which people build their base for self-advancement and works for the general good of the community as a whole, and the nation in its entirety. A library is an indispensable embellishment to a school, university or institution, without which, any teaching institution will find it hard to impart education sans the knowledge accruing from it.
A beautiful building housing a library will rekindle the passions of the students, and entice their elements to experience the library in its new glory as a resourceful learning space.
Students now have access to near limitless reading and listening material on their smartphones and reading tablets, whether they are borrowing that material from their library or downloading it for no or nominal cost.
One thing we can say without exception that libraries do well, have always done well and will likely continue to do well far into the future.
First, libraries possess something increasingly rare in our heavily privatized world: public spaces that are comfortable, inviting and designed for informal learning. Second, libraries are delivering an experience that is not easily replaced by technology. Humans are social and as much as we seem to have an endless addiction to socializing online, we still crave face-to-face engagement, and we need spaces that are free and well-resourced, to deliver the quality of life experiences that help equalize access to societal goods that all members of our communities seek.
