Under the Central Himalayan Education Initiative (CHEI), Himmotthan has established and strengthened 45 Libraries in Bageshwar and Nainital districts of Kumaon region and 20 libraries in Tehri district of Garhwal region in Uttarakhand. The School Library program of CHEI provides information, inculcates ideas, and develops knowledge that is essential for the growth of Children in today’s fast paced environment. It is fundamental for the school libraries to equip students with lifelong learning skills and to develop innovative thinking in them.

Himmotthan Vision towards Library

The school library is a hub of all the activities planned and executed in the School. It can be used by students for the preparations of examinations, general education, information, competitions and for the recreational activities. To cater to the wide varieties of demands of students and teachers it has to judiciously select and procure the prescribed and recommended text-books and other reading material from different sources, technically process it by making use of a standard scheme of classification, catalogue it to provide various access points, organize the collection on scientific lines and circulate the documents and disseminate the information in the manner most liked by the students and teachers. In addition, the School library has to serve as a resource centre as well The provision of School Library services must be open to the whole school and community regardless of gender, race, and economic and social status, religious faith, language, and physical disabilities. The School Librarians/CHEI Project Implementers/Bal Shiskshak should see to it that specific services and materials are provided to the ones in the communities those are for some reasons are unable to use mainstream library services.

Library as a learning resource centre has following objectives:

  • Effectively participate in the teaching-learning program of the school
  • Provide the students with appropriate library materials both printed as well as audio visual and services for the overall growth and development of the Children
  • Develop reading ability, interest, and inculcate love, enjoyment and pleasure of reading amongst the students
