Pointers – whether at South Point School or at South Point High School – look forward to spending fruitful hours in the spacious, airy and stimulating ambience of Libraries. Here, books of an amazingly wide variety are neatly arranged in shelves. Seating is most comfortable while helpful and knowledgeable Librarians are there to guide the pupils through thousands of titles.
South Point School
The Junior School Library offers students a collection of nearly 23,000 volumes, most of which pupils can borrow. Classes I to V are free to take a book home for a week. Reference books, including encyclopaedias, encyclopaedic dictionaries and informative picture books are there to enrich the learning process of little Pointers. They can also access comics and cartoon books at the Library itself. Library hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. There are also classroom libraries for Classes I, II and III – books can be taken by pupils from there too.
South Point High School
To cater to the needs of senior Pointers, the High School Library houses a collection of nearly 35,000 titles, including magazines, newspapers, periodicals, subject and general reference titles besides help-books for competitive examinations which they can either borrow or browse through. Internet facilities and educational CDs supplement classroom teaching in High School.
For smooth running of the Library, several rules have been laid down for students:
The Priyamvada Birla Scholarship will be awarded every year, starting from 2013, to meritorious students belonging to the low income group, pursuing their studies in under-graduate courses in Colleges and Institutes in West Bengal on Merit cum Means Basis.
