According to the dictionary it is: a building or room containing collections of books, periodicals, and sometimes films and recorded music for use or borrowing by the public or the members of an institution.

But libraries are so much more than just a physical place with some books in it. They are the hub of the community/school a place to feel empowered by knowledge and imagination: surrounded by calm and tranquillity.
A place to be inspired and to learn…
Sidney Sheldon perfectly describes them: “Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life.”
So welcome to our library where knowledge is power and imagination is King.
As Albert Einstein once said, "The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library."
