When i was in school, every year the school will conduct book faire, they will sale old and new books from the school liberary, every time i used to buy Drawing books and story books. We will take the book and they will write our names and we should give money on the next day. some time some students used to stolen books from there, and sale it to some students. We have a big Liberary room, every week we have a Liberary class, and used to go there and read some story books, but really we will not read, just sit and taking with friend and playing. But the liberary miss will have a big scale and used to beat students, who are not reading books, some times, i also get beat from here.
