Abstract
Reading plays an integral part in the education of individual, especially children and young-adults. It is defined as a basic life skill, a cornerstone for a child’s success in school, and indeed throughout the life. Reading is so important that it cannot be eliminated from the education process. Consequently, reading is vital for the individual in different ways. Different people read for different purposes, like formal education, entertainment, informal education, obtaining social knowledge, professional development, etc. Consonantly Libraries provide access to reading materials through which school children and youths can gain and improve their skills. Libraries help introduce the use of reading for information, pleasure, passing examinations, and personal growth through lifelong learning. Libraries provide materials that offer more extensive and varied information than classroom study alone.
