Koshish Librarian Report

Date May/16/2011
Library Location Govt. Girls School, Abdullah Shah Ghazi, Karachi

My Name is Nausheen Iqbal and I am the librarian at Government Girls Primary & Secondary School, Abdullah Shah Ghazi, Karachi. I have been working fulltime as Koshish Librarian for the last seven months .

In this school there are 500+ girls students and majority of these students belong to very poor families. The library is the only place for theses students to sit comfortably, read books and gain knowledge. The primary-level students enjoy reading books that have many pictures and secondary-level students are eager to read books about new things, novels and stories . The library is the most favorite place for the students that is why they want to come to the library daily.

The library contains 1869 books which includes stories, novels, dictionaries, course books & general knowledge books . The class teachers also visit library whenever they can The library is small but very clean and silent place which helps students to read and concentrate . The students can also take the books to their homes for three days.

I am trying my best to make this library a better place for these students so that they gain knowledge, do well in studies and become good human beings.
