Role of Students in the Library: An Empirical Study

Dr. Chakpram Hemanta Singh

The current study aimed at testing the hypothesis that there would be no significant differences between boy and girl students reading in class IX and X in visiting at the library. Out of 78 schools 25 schools were selected through stratified random sampling and in these 25 schools there were 1250 students out of which 500 students reading in class IX and X were selected as subjects of the study through stratified sampling. A self-developed questionnaire was used in relation to the variables on two-point scale as Yes or No. The data were analysed through Chi-square test and percentage etc. The results revealed that the majority of the students (79.2 %) read in the library, while a small proportion of them (20.8 %) did not read in the library, in which girls (56.0 %) read more than boys (23.2 %) but the difference in reading between girls and boys was insignificant at 0.05 level, thereby supporting the hypothesis. In case of frequency of reading in the library, 33.8 percent girls read in the library daily as against 14.4 percent boys did so. Girl students (6.0 %) read frequently, while 0.8 percent boys read frequently; 15.6 percent girls read sometimes as against 8.0 percent amongst boys. Girl students (0.6 %) read very often and no boy students (0.0 %) read very often. The difference was, however, insignificant at 0.05 levels. Hence, the hypothesis was supported.
