Keeping this in mind necessary steps is regularly taken to upgrade the library facilities. The College Central library is well-organised and has a large reading room where, students are encouraged to borrow and read during their free periods. Books, magazines, journals and newspapers are kept in open access racks to induce students to go through them. In order to reach out to the maximum number of students, the College Library also maintains a Facebook page ( )through which the students can keep in touch with the Librarian and other Library personnel. The Library automation process with KOHA software is also on the verge of completion. The Library occupies a total of 979.932 SQ m area in the College premises. The total seating capacity of the library is of seventy five persons. The seating area is divided into a general area for students and a separate curtained section for the teachers. The library provides WIFI facility to the users and CCTV cameras are installed for vigilance.
