home library.

/
*
.
+any of us have books at home. These books can range from reference books
to encyclopaedias# $ournals# maga:ines or even fiction books. 1owever# we lack the
knowledge to convert these books into a home library. The books are normally
stacked in bo%es and left in the attics or storerooms to collect dust.
&hat is a home library' A home library is a little area of space in a corner of a
home or even a small room where we can place all our reading materials# references
and electronic resources. A home library can be turned into a cosy room of references
by the family members. 1ere# the family may run activities that are related to reading
such as games like ,crabble# chess# word pu::les and crossword pu::les.
8ormally# a home library contains printed and non- printed reading materials.
+aterials such as reading tools can also be placed in the home library. ,ome
e%amples of such reading materials are the dictionaries# atlas# encyclopaedias#
manuals on bikes or cars# recipes or even telephone directories.
(n addition# it is good to add in some light reading materials or viewing
materials in the home library. There are a vast collection of novels# picture books#
maga:ines# family photo albums and articles that can be collected by the family
members for reference. 2ther added collections to the home library are videotapes#
cassettes# !- *2+s# board games and even brochures.
+ost people do not reali:e that having a home library is beneficial. A home
library can foster a long- life love for reading among the family members. hildren
can be given the opportunity to be e%posed to reading books at a young age.
(ndirectly# the young readers can be inculcated with the love for reading. *eading can
be made as one of the activities for the family members. The parents can guide the
children to read books and at the same time# foster good family relationships.
hildren can also be fostered to adopt a positive attitude to appreciate reading
materials and knowledge that is of value to them. (n the long run# the family
members can develop their reading process. A home library enables the family

members to read materials within the confines of their own homes. The materials can
be easily accessed at any time. +oreover# the reading activities can be carried out to
improve the thinking skills of family members.
There are many activities that one can carry out in a home library. (n this little
library of knowledge# one can test the family members on skill of chess# ,crabble or
+alay strategic game called ?congkak@. (n this small corner of a room# one can also
teach the family members to make some handicrafts like origami. A family can also
sit together to test their command of vocabulary through ,crabble# a crossword
pu::le and a list of other board games. There are also games that challenge the mind
that can be stored in this home library. 2ne e%ample is the ?,ahibba@.
To make a home library a good resource centre for family members and even
friends# one e%ample is to get the help of the state public library management on
ways to manage and run the home library. ,ome bookshelves will be needed to make
the place :resentable. Another way is to arrange the books according to the types
and interests.
(t is easy to set up a home library. 9et your home organi:ed and have a corner
of your room or even a special room to get this place started. =ou may be surprised
that your family members will actually need such a room.
