Students at Moongibai Goenka Girls' Higher Secondary School now have a better-stocked library thanks to an additional 400 books donated as part of the 'Spreading the Joy of Reading' campaign.

The programme is being carried out under The Hindu Group's Lit Fest banner, in partnership with the title sponsor, G Square, and will provide 400 new books to up to 30 schools across Chennai, Coimbatore, Tiruchi, and Kancheepuram.

R. Santhakumari, the school's headmistress, was thrilled with the additional reading materials for the pupils. "Every week, two periods are given to the library so that pupils can improve their reading. The majority of our pupils come from low-income families and hence lack access to other reading materials. "These new books will help with that," she explained.

"It is critical to encourage students to read more than just textbooks." By doing so, we assist students improve their reading skills and acquire a broader interest in a variety of topics. Libraries have always been vital. They are locations where individuals can learn and be inspired by fantastic ideas. Even today, many successful people, particularly those from rural areas, credit libraries for kindling their curiosity and love of learning.

While G Square is well-known for providing people with space to build their dream home, we thought it would be nicer if we provided a small space where children could learn about the world, preparing them to be tomorrow's leaders," said Latha Aranganathan, Chief Marketing Officer of G Square.

"Through this initiative, we aim to transcend mere education and cultivate a deep-seated passion for reading within the hearts and minds of our young learners," said Sundaresan. S, vice president of advertisement-sales south, The Hindu Group.

A. Sowparnika Lakshmi, a class 11 student, was looking forward to reading the books because she thought it would give her a different perspective on numerous subjects.
