A library is a curated collection of sources of information and similar resources, selected by experts and made accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical location or a virtual space, or both.
A lot needs to be done to make the library a more attractive place of learning. The library needs to be creative in bringing on board innovative activities such as open space reading environment, game centers, cafes, etc. Library staff should be moving around the various desks to assist staff to locate library materials.
Student s and patrons alike are facing a lot of issues that need to be addressed by the library. Patrons should also be allowed to use mobile phones and other electronic gadgets which will be helpful to them in the library.
