Kendriya Vidyalaya in Madurai has become the first school in Madurai to successfully run an online library. This library will cater to the needs of thousands of the school’s students. Visitors to the library’s site can access 17,487 books, approximately 74 magazines and four of the top English dailies. The library website went live last year in June using the ‘auto lib software system’ and has since garnered around 1.3 lakh visitors. Students are able to access a good deal of resources such as e-books, reference material and other syllabi, using this online library even after school hours. Besides being an online library, the site also has different categories of information such as a creative corner and thinking skills. This online library has also proved to be of great help to CBSE school teachers.
