Library plays a vital role in academic and research system and that is why library is considered to be the heart of educational / research system. Without a good library and a laboratory, any college cannot ensure quality education or research. It is, however, the interest of reader rather than infrastructure that makes a library look beautiful. A good ambiance in a library are the shelves filled with manuscripts and the students silently seated with their heads down and eyes focusing on books. Ours is a very old library that occupies a munificence of generations of authors for their kind contribution in the respected fields of Science, Social Science, and Humanities. The College has a well furnished library with thousands of books of various subjects. The college has also subscribed several periodicals including magazines and news papers.


  • Silence is key in the library even the sound of walking shoes is indiscipline to us.
  • Books removed from the shelves should be left on the study table and no effort should be made to replace these books. Please remember that a book misplaced is a book lost.
  • While entering the library students and faculty should mark their arrival and departure on the register available at the entrance.
  • No student shall be allowed inside the library without proper inspection of his/her identity card.
  • While entering the library, readers should leave their personal belongings, such as bags, brief-cases, personal books, and parcels near the counter reserved for this purpose. However, they carry loose papers and note books.
  • Readers leaving the library should allow the library/security staff to examine their personal belongings.
  • Readers should not deface, mark, cut, mutilate or damage library material in any way. If anyone is found doing so, he will be charged the full replacement cost of the material.
  • Help in maintaining a peaceful atmosphere for study. Conversation disturbs your neighbors who want to study. If discussion is necessary, please go to the common/class rooms.
  • In case of delay in return of the books on time by the borrower, a fine of two rupees shall be charged every day.
