The library has over a number of 4679 books and the number keeps growing as new books are brought into the library.

The library has mainly two sections;

The open shelf section here the Library user can get any book of their choice. The time span that one is allowed to borrow a book is two weeks after which the user is supposed to return the book to the library.

The Reference section this section in the library contains the most used books these books are not loaned out because of their constant demand so the students use the books within the library premises.
