Pentingnya perpustakaan di rumah


Kajian oleh Mariah Evans menyatakan dengan mempunyai sebuah perpustakaan di rumah, dengan jumlah buku 500 buah,  anak kita akan mendapat ekstra 3.2 tahun pendidikan. Kajian selama 20 tahun ini jelas menunjukkan pentingnya perpustakaan di rumah yang dapat memberi kesan kepada pendidikan anak-anak. Baca maklumat lanjut daripada Nevada News.

Abstrak kertas kerja beliau adalah seperti berikut:

Children growing up in homes with many books get 3 years more schooling than children from bookless homes, independent of their parents’ education, occupation, and class. This is as great an advantage as having university educated rather than unschooled parents, and twice the advantage of having a professional rather than an unskilled father. It holds equally in rich nations and in poor; in the past and in the present; under Communism, capitalism, and Apartheid; and most strongly in China. Data are from representative national samples in 27 nations, with over 70,000 cases, analyzed using multi-level linear and probit models with multiple imputation of missing data.

Alhamdulillah, perpustakaan mini rumah saya telah mendapat tempat ke-3 pertandingan Perpustakaan Keluarga (kategori rumah teres/bandar) peringkat negeri Sarawak 2006.

    Puan Siti, untuk menyusun buku di rak, biasanya berdasarkan bidang.

    Tetapi bagi membuat kataloging, saya gunakan: http://www.librarything.com/catalog/syahrul
