Here’s to Librarians, the Keepers of Knowledge

12th August is celebrated as National Librarians’ Day in India, in memory of the Professor of Library Science – Dr. S.R. Ranganathan (1892- 1972), who spearheaded the development of libraries in India. His most notable contribution to the field was the five laws of Library Science. The Government of India honoured Dr. S.R. Ranganathan with the Padma Shri, for his valuable contribution.

On this special occasion, the KET Library was decorated. Students wrote reviews on books. They also wrote thoughtful messages about KET’s library and quotes on reading. Moreover, the KET Learning Resource Centre conducted a quiz on Indian mythology and organised an inspiring talk on ‘Will books become Dinosaurs?’ by Mr. Amrut Deshmukh, author of the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers. The session was very well-received by the audience, who was truly inspired by Mr. Deshmukh’s experiences and words of wisdom.
