Library holds an Indispensable role in improving students' achievements and developing a creative Society. Being the heart of the teaching-learning process of the college, the library serves the information needs of the academic community. The college library started functioning soon after the inception of the college in 1972. Initially, the Library was housed in a small room in one of the sheds of Govt. Polytechnic Nattakom. Later the library was shifted to A-block in the college building. The wish to have its own building for the general library became attainable in 2022 and from then onwards the library began to function here. The library has an extensive collection of academic books, research materials, and periodicals for satisfying the academic and research needs of students and faculty. The library has automated all its activities to provide effective services to library patrons. College Library has a collection of more than 50000 books and a good collection of Periodicals and journals. The library follows Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) and has been automated with Grandha and KOHA software respectively since 2014. Users can access the INFLIBNET N LIST Programme, which is a vast repository of online journals and e-books.
