Library Rules

Home / Rules and Regulations / Library Rules
  • The Library is one of our most valued teaching - learning resources.
  • All articles, personal belongings and bags must be left outside when entering the library. Only an exercise book and library book, if it is to be returned, may be taken into the Library.
  • Books from the School Library are issued regularly. No other magazine, reference book or paper may be circulated in the school without the permission of the Principal. Class captains are to ensure that they check the girls before entering and when leaving the Library.
  • The Library Card needs to be surrendered to borrow books from the library. Only one book will be issued per card and no student can take a book on another’s card. A book can be kept for one week only and re-issued once. No renewal will be allowed . After that books over due may be returned on any day with a fine of Rs.5/- per day.
  • Books exclusively meant for reference and consultation are not to be taken out of the library. They remain available to all students all the time.
  • Before leaving the Library every student must submit for scrutiny the books borrowed.
  • Books borrowed from the library must be returned directly to the librarian. They must not be circulated. A student who circulates books borrowed from the library may have her Library card withdrawn and may be fined as well.
  • If any defect is noticed in a book that is being borrowed, the librarian should be notified. Failure to do this check renders one liable to be held responsible for the defect once it is detected, on the return of the book. Fines will be imposed for damages done to books and magazines in the Library.
  • Books lost must be replaced by the borrower.
  • A remark will be entered in the library page of the School Diary for every book returned late. Three such remarks will result in the withdrawal of the Library card and fine of Rs.50/- may be imposed.
  • No book will be issued to or retained by the students during the summer, autumn and winter vacations.
  • During class hours (8:10 a.m – 2:30 p.m), classes will be allowed into the library only according to the time-table published by the Principal.
  • The Library will remain open for 1hour after school, and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
