About Krishnath College Library

The Central Library of Krishnath College plays a pivotal role in the process of enhancement of teaching-learning of the College with a collection of approximately 47000 books besides magazines and journals and other reading materials, located on the first floor of the physics building. The Library has a rich collection of old and rare books, invaluable reference books for the use of its patrons, and others who quest for knowledge and information. It is open to all bona fide students, teachers and other members of the college. Two borrower’s cards are issued to each student who takes admission in the college. Apart from the central library, each department has a seminar library with modest collection, from where the students can avail one additional library card with the permission of the departmental library in charge. The Library modernization (Automation) system and services has been started through Koha.
