From the inception of this college in 1964, our Founder, Dr. Tinkari Ghosh , established the college Library. Two ornamental antique almirahs with books from his personal collection are assets of our library . Couple of years later, Professor Bipin Krishna Ghosh donated a valuable collection of books as the “Bankim Chandra Ghosh Collection”. In keeping with this tradition, Dr.Shyamal Kumar Sengupta, erstwhile Reader of Bengali, also donated a large number of books on different subjects. At present our Central Library has 20,000 books (reference and text), along with about 15 magazines, periodicals and several newspapers. Significant help in career planning for students is provided through Pesha Prabesh, Karmakshetra, and Employment News on the shelves. This treasure is accessible to every student through the ‘ Open Access System’. Each student will be provided 3 library cards. A lending card enables the student to borrow one book at a time from Central Library. With the Book Bank Card one may borrow one book at a time from the Book Bank, a separate section of the Central Library. A student may take any material – books, journals, magazines, newspapers – even restricted Reference Works, from the library and peruse it in the Reading Room, from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. , every working day. The well- furnished Reading Room can accommodate 100 students at a time. The Library also provides Internet services. The complete titles in the collection are in the process of being digitized. Central air-conditioning is being installed in the Library.
