Central Library

Central Library, Jorhat Kendriya Mahavidyalaya

It is a recognized fact that the library is the heart of any educational institution which stands side by side with its parent organization in carrying out its teaching programme effectively. With this view, the Central Library of Jorhat Kendriya Mahavidyalaya was established in the year 1981 with the very inception of the college itself.



The main objective of the library is to procure, organize, preserve and disseminate information in all fields of knowledge to serve the institutional, curricular, research and instructional requirements as well as the cultural needs of the college community. The library has a very well balanced library collection to meet the reading, reference and research needs of the students, faculty and staff of its parent organization. The library staff are trying better to organize the library to make it more and more user friendly. Every library staff aims to create a healthy learning environment within the library in view of the five laws of library science.
