Bethune College, Kolkata Infrastructure Details

Facilities :-

General Library

The Library has developed together with the college as an indispensable part of the entire college. The location of the Library has been changed a number of times. Initially the college library was situated in the Bethune School Hall.

In 1940 Bethune College was shifted to the Christ Church Building now named 'Vidyasagar Bhavan' and the library was shifted to the first floor of the building. With the increase in the number of students, honours subjects, library grants and simultaneous increase of books, the necessity of a separate library building was strongly felt. In 1983, the library was bifurcated into the Arts Library and the Science Library and the two wings were shifted to two separate buildings - Mrs. Mrinalini Emerson's (ex-Principal's) quarter became the science library and the second floor of the centenary building now named 'Kadambini Bhavan' became the Arts Library.

A New building has been constructed beside Chandramukhi Bhavan where the Science library is now located on the ground floor.

The Library has a rich collection of about 1,00,000 (one lakh) books and journals. These include some rare and priceless books and journals. About 1100 new books are added every year. There are separate libraries for Science and Humanities to provide better accommodation and convenience. Each department has its own Departmental library too.
