The Library was established in the year 1973. The constant growth of library with study materials and infrastructure is possible because of our President Dr. M. Aruchami and our Secretary Dr. C.A. Vasuki, to whom "Library is a nerve centre of any educational institution"

In the year 2000, the library was shifted to a new building and in the year 2004, the library was upgraded from Library to Library & Information Centre.
