The College Library was set up in the year 1998. The Library had an initial collection of 400 books and they catered to the B.com Course. As the number of course grew the library collection too has kept pace. Presently in the year 2015, the library books /magazines have increased exponentially. The library caters to all the undergraduate & post graduate courses conducted by the college. The College Library has correspondingly tried to build up a collection suited to each of these courses. Over the years, it has emerged as the sole repository of the syllabus books. Our collection includes reference books and the mandatory text books. It also includes books & even encyclopaedias on environment, management, television, journalism, video production, politics & history. An eclectic collection of fiction, non fiction books has also been built up.
