“Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested”
-Sir Francis Bacon
Being a part of the curriculum, the library of GRD Academy has become an important tool in the propagation of academic advancement. Our librarian and teachers encourage the children to choose books according to their taste and to use the library for independent study & for research towards their presentations and projects. What cannot be completed in school can be ‘chewed and digested’ at home. We find that our children are improving not only in the subject matter chosen for reading, but also in language- expression, vocabulary and fluency.
The library is categorized into four sections:
1) KG Library comprises of puzzle books, language books, interactive flash cards, comprehensive curriculum of base scales, three dimensional books on rhyming words, numbers, alphabets, opposites etc.
2) Classes I & II Library stocks fairy tales, fables, plays, and many more fictional book of great writers like Sally & Sam, Sam D. S. Enid Blyton, James H. Fassel, John Gatehouse, etc.
3) Classes III to V Library stores books on fairy tales, short stories, fables, academic coverage, general knowledge, art & craft, etc.
4) Classes VI – XII Library stores books on English Fiction, Hindi Fiction, Science & Technology, Art & Craft, History books, Encyclopedias and many other reference books besides the syllabus books. From time to time books are been added to our already voluminous stock.
We also have a magazine section where sports magazines and popular magazines like ‘India Today’, ‘Readers Digest’, ‘Outlook’ and ‘The Week’ are supplied.
