The college Library is a well equipped and well stocked of one lakh books and 72 national and international journals catering to need of the different courses being offered by the college and 11 newspapers. We have two sections of collection general collection which is open access and  issuable and the other is reference collection which is non-issuable.

Ours is a fully computerized Library using Libsys Software (an integrated Library management system), where all the housekeeping job are performed through the Libsys. The database of books and journal available is updated on day-to-day basis and OPAC are provided for students and teachers to search for documents available.

We hold sensitization workshops in the library along with the Enabling unit of the college. In order to provide equal access to our visually challenged users, we are developing our collection to meet their requirements; the library has Braille books and CDs.
