1.1 Preamble Schools are the production centres endowed with the noble responsibility of producing learned, civilized and worthy citizens of a country Every school has its own plan of action with a set of well-designed curriculum objectives. The aim of the school is not just academic achievement of the students, rather the development of overall personality of them. And so, emphasis is being given on scholastic, co-scholastic and non-scholastic skills of the students. Libraries in the schools are the strong supporting centres which supplement and complement the accomplishment of the objectives set forth by their parental bodies. They are the knowledge facilitation points in every school. According to the U.S. Commission on Libraries and Information Science (2005), “Students in schools with good school libraries learn more, get better grades, and score higher on standardized test scores”(p.4). As Ranganthan(1962) quoted ‘ The result of modern re-thinking on education is to make the library the heart of the school, from which every activity in the school radiates and by which it all gets irradiated’. International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) Policy statement on school libraries remarks that the school library is essential to "the development of the human personality as well as the spiritual, moral, social, cultural and economic progress of the community"(p.1).
