He stated that books are for use, every reader has his/her book, every book has its reader, that a library must save the time of the reader and that a library is a growing organism. These laws are in use in the library with the Open Access System. The students and teachers have accessibility to the racks and collections are developed and updated constantly keeping in mind the interests of all library users.
