"The School has as its logo a burning torch which imparts the message of ‘ Dispel ignorance’ and ‘Spread the light of knowledge’.
Libraries support learning within the pedagogic goals of the school. Lancer’s library has a vast collection of books for students to read and develop a passion for reading. The school library is a store house of books, a temple of learning, a place to explore and rejuvenate. The library at Lancers stocks a total of 23,400 books, both in the junior and senior library, housing a wide range of authors.
The great classics written by authors like CHARLES DICKENS, THOMAS HARDY, JANE AUSTEN and WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE are all time favourites with the children. Many of the famous Indian writers like KIRAN DESAI, R.K NARAYAN, ANITA DESAI have given birth to many budding writers in the literary firmament of Lancer's. With Harry Potter they get teleported to the mysterious world of 'sorcery and magic'.Lancers hosts many budding poets and authors.The purpose of having a well equipped library at Lancer's is to inculcate critical literacy in Lancerian's and create independently thinking individuals.
Reading books not only increases their knowledge but also enables them to widely interpret and analyse literature with objectivity and fairness. The school provides the students with books which give a flight to their imagination and help them to hold on to their dreams. The kind of books that are made available to the students range from 'mythology' to 'scientific innovations'.
They quench their thirst for adventure,fantasy and thrill with authors like JONATHAN SWIFT,SIDNEY SHELDON,ROBIN COOK,AGATHA CHRISTIE and JEFFERY ARCHER to name a few. On the other hand VIKRAM SETH, JOHN GRISHAM and R.K NARAYAN give them the courage to be good social critics with a zeal for mocking pomposity and satirizing the society for its flaws. Many students have also turned to inspirational books by author like ROBIN SHARMA,DEEPAK CHOPRA,RHONDA BYRNE and PAULO COEHLO as they feel the paucity of role models in the society A few of our avid readers are also familiar with books by LEO TOLSTOY, GORKY, KHALID HOUSSEINI, SALMAN RUSHDIE, AYN RAND and many more.
The school has a focus on placing learning at the centre of its educational process and this has driven all agendas.
