Libraries Still Relevant in Shaping the Thought Process of Your Child

by Presidium School Schools

In this age of digitalization, what do we expect from our child’s school library or any library in general? Well, a lot and it depends, of course, on their ages. We must know how to use the extensive resources to its full potential. The best way to find out is to actually take your kid and visit libraries and try out the variety of programs that are available besides browsing through the massive resources, says a veteran librarian of one of the best libraries in Delhi.

Let us find how libraries are beneficial at every stage for the right development of your child, as suggested by veterans and child experts of best schools that comprise some of the best libraries in Delhi:

For preschoolers:

We often think that school library does not hold anything important for children below the age of 3 years; however, if you look closely that may not be the case. Many libraries offer books and even have programs for infants. Off late, many preschools and play schools have launched their reading programs which utilize tools and kits to stimulate baby’s language development through games, songs, and other activities. Sometimes, your child’s school library contains books for babies, books on parenting, says a veteran librarian of one of the best libraries in Delhi.

These days’ the best libraries in Delhi invite parents to come with their child and attend special workshops and conduct parent-child story hours in the evenings. Parents, in such workshops, learn finger playing, songs, rhymes and songs which enhance children’s language skills and assist cognitive development in toddlers. So, by the time children reach the ages 3-5 they easily can mingle and enjoy participating in group activities sponsored by school libraries. Besides, it is always beneficial to check out your kid’s preschool library for resources, such as hardbacks, books with cardboard pages, picture books, cloth books, paperbacks, and magazines. Sometimes they also contain, recordings of stories and songs and CDs and other kits.

For school going children:

For school going children, the school library is the best place to find information for free and help with school work. You might be wondering how it is any more important in the age of Google. Let, take a closer look. Not extensive reference material is available for free online. This expansion of digitization in no way diminishes the library’s importance as a source of knowledge.  For elementary school childrenthere are variations in read-aloud books to fill the storytelling hours which include discussion and presentations by the children. For middle and high school kids, school library offers book talks, summer reading programs and creative writing books and books to assist their poetry readings besides all the serious educational stuff.

As your children grow older it is advisable to provide them with a sense of wonder and curiosity by encouraging them to find out answers to their endless questions and look up these answers in dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, and almanac.

Let them look beyond the obvious and explore, make friends with books. Let libraries be their playgrounds. All the best!
