A good reading habit leads to a strong mind with broader horizons. As HBBPS believes that a school library is an integral part of academic set-up, we have a huge double – storey, spacious, well-ventilated, well-equipped and updated library with a seating capacity of 50 students on each floor. The school library provides approximately 7,000 books of various fields including a wide range of fictions, non-fictions, reference books, textbooks, illustrated encyclopedias, Britannica, supplementary books prescribed by CBSE etc. In addition to all these latest collections, school library also subscribes more than 25 renowned magazines like Outlook, India Today along with esteemed and well-reputed newspapers like HT and Dainik Jagran which maintain children interest in supplementary knowledge on current affairs and development in the field of science and technology. It not only widens their thought process and enriches their knowledge but also helps them to survive and outshine in today’s cut throat competitive world. We have set up class library for classes IV – VI and floor library for classes VII – XII.
Apart from imparting bookish knowledge we also focus on practicality of life. To provide exposure to practical aspect of life, the school library also organizes various activities and competitions round the year like book cover designing, book mark making, quizzes, poetry and newspaper making on various burning issues to develop children’s critical and creative thinking.
The quality of books and the rich variety of texts available is the hallmark of HBBPS library.
