Library Rules

The library is open to all the members of the school on every working day. Pupils should visit the library frequently and do intelligent reading and reference work without neglecting general good reading.
• “I have somewhere seen it observed that we should make use of a book as a bee does of a flower. She steals nectar from it but does not injure it” – Cotton.
