Section C

[25 marks]

[Time suggested: 50 minutes]

Questions 26-31 are based on the following passage which is about the benefits of setting up a

home library.

  • 1 Many of us have books at home. These books can range from reference books

to encyclopaedias, journals, magazines or even fiction books. However, we lack the

knowledge to convert these books into a home library. The books are normally

stacked in boxes and left in the attics or storerooms to collect dust.

  • 2 What is a home library? A home library is a little area of space in a corner of a

5

home or even a small room where we can place all our reading materials, references

and electronic resources. A home library can be turned into a cosy room of references

by the family members. Here, the family may run activities that are related to reading

such as games like Scrabble, chess, word puzzles and crossword puzzles.

  • 3 Normally, a home library contains printed and non- printed reading materials.

10

Materials such as reading tools can also be placed in the home library. Some

examples of such reading materials are the dictionaries, atlas, encyclopaedias,

manuals on bikes or cars, recipes or even telephone directories.

  • 4 In addition, it is good to add in some light reading materials or viewing

materials in the home library. There are a vast collection of novels, picture books,

15

magazines, family photo albums and articles that can be collected by the family

members for reference. Other added collections to the home library are videotapes,

cassettes, CD- ROMs, board games and even brochures.

  • 5 Most people do not realize that having a home library is beneficial. A home

library can foster a long- life love for reading among the family members. Children

20

can be given the opportunity to be exposed to reading books at a young age.

Indirectly, the young readers can be inculcated with the love for reading. Reading can

be made as one of the activities for the family members. The parents can guide the

children to read books and at the same time, foster good family relationships.

Children can also be fostered to adopt a positive attitude to appreciate reading

25

materials and knowledge that is of value to them. In the long run, the family

members can develop their reading process. A home library enables the family

1119/2 2014

[Lihat sebelah]

SULIT

10

members to read materials within the confines of their own homes. The materials can

be easily accessed at any time. Moreover, the reading activities can be carried out to

improve the thinking skills of family members.

30

  • 6 There are many activities that one can carry out in a home library. In this little

library of knowledge, one can test the family members on skill of chess, Scrabble or

Malay strategic game called “congkak”. In this small corner of a room, one can also

teach the family members to make some handicrafts like origami. A family can also

sit together to test their command of vocabulary through Scrabble, a crossword

35

puzzle and a list of other board games. There are also games that challenge the mind

that can be stored in this home library. One example is the “Sahibba”.

  • 7 To make a home library a good resource centre for family members and even

friends, one example is to get the help of the state public library management on

ways to manage and run the home library. Some bookshelves will be needed to make

40

the place presentable. Another way is to arrange the books according to the types

and interests.

  • 8 It is easy to set up a home library. Get your home organized and have a corner

of your room or even a special room to get this place started. You may be surprised

that your family members will actually need such a room.
