Books are a treasure trove of knowledge that provides information on a wide range of subjects to understand the topic better and implement the same. St. Xavier firmly believes that technology will never replace the book at anytime. Right from the early stages of the schooling, it encourages a love for reading. Library-Media center in St. Xavier has a vast collection of books in all subjects, reference books, magazines, periodicals, newspapers and interactive CDs, which the students can borrow or refer during the school hours. Weekly classes are organized on book reading, play-acting and storytelling to inculcate in the students the habit of utilising this treasure trove of knowledge. Students are also encouraged to spend their leisure time in the library to explore informative and interesting topics on current affairs or any other subject of their interest.
