“Reader of the Month” Awards

The Library Media centre in collaboration with the Reader’s Club  has instituted a “Reader of the Month” Award from August 2011. Every month a student and a teacher will be selected for this citation. The evaluation will be based on the number of books borrowed from the library, reviews presented or published (on the library blogs) and the effective use of other library resources in the regular teaching and learning process.

The winners will be introduced in the assembly and presented with a citation. A short interview along with a photograph will also be published on library websites, quarterly bulletin and bulletin boards.

So, don’t wait for another chance. Be an active user of your Library. Let the world know what you read.
