A library has many uses and it is the duty of everyone to be attached to a library. We, in India, have a bad reputation as readers of books. In our Schools and Colleges we generally confine ourselves to the study of textbooks. Sometimes we do read books outside the syllabus, but they are usually novels. If we are members of a good library, we may be attracted by a variety of books. Lists of new books published by a library are a perpetual temptation to its readers. There is also the librarian, one of whose duties is to guide the readers in the choice of books.
