भँवरों का आहार फूल,
तितली आवास फूल,
फूल होते हैं, कोमल,
कर जाते मन पावन।
वसुधा का श्रृंगार फूल,
देवों को भाता फूल,
जीवन भर देता प्रेरणा,
प्रेरित रहो यही है कहना।
हम भी बन जाएं फूलों जैसे,
काम करो जीवन में वैसे।
भँवरों का आहार फूल,
तितली आवास फूल।

The Use of Library
A library is a centre of knowledge. We should be proud of having a good library in our school and locality. It is also a cultural centre. People go to library to read newspaper and magazines, books, poetry, drama, short stories, novels, scientific books etc. We become great by reading books. Books not only increase our knowledge but also help us to think better. “Reading makes a full man”. A good library can turn the whole village or town a place of good men and women. The society itself becomes developed. In addition to this we can give informal education to the adults with the help of libraries. Visiting the library should become the habit of an individual for the growth of his/her personality.
