Visit the Library
SGSS Hounslow is equipped with educational facilities including 3 modern classrooms supported with a Library. It is situated in the new annexe on the first floor of the Academy.
In a traditional sense, a library is a large collection of books, and can refer to the place in which the collection is housed.
In todays Information Age, the term can refer to any collection, including digital sources, resources, and services. However, more important is the creation of a welcoming and comfortable environment to use such resources to escalate one’s knowledge base.
The library is free to use for visitors to the Gurdwara. If you wish to borrow any of the books, please see the librarian on duty at the time. You must take responsibility for the safe and punctual return of any materials you borrow. The library is there for everyone to use and if individual visitors hang on to books for too long, they will be depriving others from the benefits
Please be courteous to other visitors of the library by speaking in soft voices.
If you do not find a particular book or material you are looking for, please contact the library and let us know. If we can, we will try and acquire the material for you. This is subject to deman, availability and cost. The Gurdwara makes no guarantee to provide requested materials.
If you have books or material that you would like to donate to the library, please contact the library and let us know. We will gladly accept dontated materials that could benefit other visitors.
We are always looking for sewadars to help us improve our facilities and services. Please contact the library if you would like to help.
