The students of Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom gifted books to the children of Govt. U. P. S. Palkulangara and make them their friends, under the newly launched social responsibility initiative “Library-Social Connect”. The programme, “Gift a Book and Get a Friend” held on the other day, was aimed to provide students with better opportunities to know about the society at large and other learning systems in particular and to make friendship through reading and books.

The session was formally inaugurated by S. Neerada, Principal, KV Pattom by presenting a set of books to V. Anil Kumar, Head Master, Govt. U. P. S. Palkulangara, followed by each student from KV Pattom gifting books to the children of the host school. They were also gifted with sweets, writing materials, cards and toys. The members of the Readers’ Club then presented stories, book reviews, poems and played instrumental music to add colour to the occasion. Gayathri, the author of the book ‘Marunnu purattanvendi murivundakkunnavar’, shared her experience on becoming a writer.  The students together visited different corners of the school and interacted with teachers and other staff.

The 450 gifted books will be added to the library collection of the school where only 50 students from unprivileged sections of the society are studying. The programme was also attended by Indu, PTA Secretary and Jagadambal, former Head Mistress.

The ‘Library-Social Connect’ initiative will be planning more such programmes to take the students to the society at large, informed S. L. Faisal, KV Pattom Librarian and also the coordinator of the event.
