The purpose of any school library is to support all educational programs, give learners and teachers the opportunity to seek help of additional sources other than textbook, and above all, cultivate reading habits in learners. The library also has a vibrant role of making learners curious to know more beyond what they are taught in class. More so, being critical and creative thinkers, gain knowledge, skills personal development that they will use throughout their lives.
Since the library work hand in hand with the language departments, learners have been allocated library sessions in their time table just like any other subjects. Once a week for the lower school, and twice for the middle and upper school, (i.e for maktaba lessons were they only do activities related to Kiswahili and library lesson were they do activities related to English lesson) Learners are always accompanied by the language teachers for these lessons.
During these session, learners do silent reading, read aloud, newspaper review project among other language related activities.
Since a lesson can be very short to finish an interesting book, learners are given the opportunity to borrow books for personal reading usually under a period of 7 days before returning and there after allowed to borrow another.
To ensure the above expectations are met, and be at per with the new curriculum, the board upgraded the library whereby, it got new shelving and three sitting arrangements, cushioned area for the lower school, study area for any library users, and the most loved area by learners, the tiered seats. With the current sitting arrangement, the library can comfortably sit a whole stream with approximately 80 learners to capacity
Classification of books on the shelves have been done to ease identification, retrieval and reshelving, Colour schemes have been used to differentiate the books sections.
