Library of the College started in 1958, in a small way, outside the Principal’s office with a couple of cupboards and a few books. In 1960, it was moved to a little room on the ground floor. The library existed in this little room for a few years adding to the original stock of books and cupboards till it was finally shifted to the Third floor of the building where it now exists. The college has a well equipped library which serves as a rich collection of updated, relevant material for undergraduate and post graduate students. The library is completely computerized and serves all categories of people from the field apart from its services to the college.
