Chandigarh, 30th June 2020: Making reading a habit has always been an endeavour at Bhavan Vidyalaya Chandigarh. The pandemic and its repercussions may have kept them from visiting the well-stocked school library, but the numerous library activities undertaken by the school have ensured that reading continues for its students.

‘The stay-at-home phase continues, but so does reading for Bhavanites,’ says proud librarian Ms. Anju Verma, who has put together the library activities this term. To celebrate Book Week, a video on ‘How a Book is Born’ was shared with students along with a presentation on how a book is printed in a press. Meanwhile, quizzes based on authors and quotes created kept children’s guessing game going strong. Among other activities, students created posters based on the life and literary works on authors from the comfort of their homes. Pupils of various classes also indulged in library activities like making paperweights, book marks, files and folders from old newspapers, etc.

Starting this month, the librarian also shares a moral story a day via virtual platform with various classes, keeping students motivated and unruffled in these trying times.
