TITLE :SCHOOL LIBRARIES IN THE PRIVATE MANAGEMENT HIGHER SECONDARY EDUCATION SECTOR IN THE STATE OF KERALA

ABSTRACT: The paper discusses the status of private management higher secondary school libraries in the state of Kerala. School libraries are the repositories of knowledge and form an integral part of school curriculum in the education sector. The private management schools have more discretion on curriculum and instructional methods, so they are more focused on the interests and abilities of their students. They do not allow any compromise to students’ academic performance. Libraries play a major role in their academic excellence and thereby developing students’ intellectual growth. Most of the private management schools have well equipped library facilities and the services are provided by the presence of qualified librarians. Even the students in the primary level have at least two library hours per each week. The use of school libraries especially in the higher secondary education causes their mental, academic, social and cultural development. They play a major role to make each and every student to become a good citizen.
