Library Resources Training

Program Title: Effective Use of Library Resources

We understand the Value of Reading.  The saying “Leaders are Readers”, stands more true in the ever changing and challenging environment of educational leadership. The following logical sequence exists:

  • We have to develop a nation that is education hungry as well as goes beyond text books to seek knowledge.
  • To develop a nation which is education hungry and that goes beyond text books, we need to develop a nation which loves to read.
  • This can only be done if we develop readers.
  • And readers are only developed if we instill among them a habit of reading….right from the very earlier childhood stages.
  • This can only be done through Teachers. It is teachers who can do this great task.

 It is in pursuit of this purpose, we have developed Library Resources Training Program.
