There are a wide range of books available at the library. You will rarely be able to find such a large and diverse assortment of books in any one facility except a library. The books contain information and knowledge on a variety of subjects which can be useful for studying and researching purposes.

Reading is a very beneficial habit and it should be inculcated in every individual. Moreover, libraries have contributed greatly towards bringing awareness on many issues; they have also played a major role in improving the literacy rate.

Libraries have a very calm, quiet and peaceful environment which promotes learning and reading. This environment helps people focus and improve concentration.
