A library is an important source of knowledge to young minds in academic institutions. It develops the important habit among the students and plays an important role in promoting the progress of knowledge. There are many people who love reading, but they can’t afford to buy books (Encyclopedias and large dictionaries) due to high price of the same. Consequently the libraries are very useful for those who have an appetite for higher studies. As gateways to knowledge and culture, libraries functions a house where all subjects reside. The resources and services they offer create opportunities for learning, support literacy and education, help to shape the new ideas and perspectives that are central to a creative and innovative society. They also help to ensure an authentic record of knowledge created and accumulated by the past generations. In a word without libraries, it would be difficult to advance research and human knowledge or preserve the world’s cumulative knowledge and heritage for future generations.

At present the library of the college has been housed in the first floor of Administrative Block. It remains open on all working days to facilitate the students for higher learning and advance studies. It has a collection of 14000 books and periodicals, on all programs studied in the institution. Books are issued to students and teaching faculty of the institution. Students avail the facility on the production of library cum identity cards. A student can borrow a book for a period of two weeks. The library has a valuable reference section with a good number of rare books.

Reading Room an offshoot of the library is also located in the same floor, where scholars avail the facility to read and study the following valuable material;

  • All National Dailies.
  • All Local Dailies.
  • Periodicals like, Chemistry Today, Mathematics Today, Physics Today, Biology Today and India Today.
  • Front Line, Employment News.
  • Research Journals in humanities and science.

Further the library has been automated with SOUI 2 Library Management Software. The students avail the facility of Internet Browsing Centre to access on line contents.   

The college administration has remained more active to update the library and to facilitate the students and teachers of the institution for excellence. Consequently time and again the Dept. of Higher Education has allotted a moderate financial assistance (financial year wise) to purchase books for the improvement of library book bank, which has been spent by the college as shown under;
