LIBRARY TERMS

Udaya Public School has a rich Library with over 10,000 books. Our Library consists of fiction, non-fiction, competition-level books, course books, educational board games and educational DVDs.

Starting 2018, we are switching over to a computerised book issuing process.

Also, Udaya Library has started issuing Library Cards for parents from 2018. Parents can avail the card for an annual fee and can enjoy reading along with their children.
