In the present era of knowledge revolution, the relevance of a college library is ever increasing. Responding positively to the newly-defined roles of a college library in the present scenario, Payyanur College Library has taken measures to make latest items of knowledge accessible to the academic community.
The College Library became functional on 02.08.1965, the same year in which the college was established. In the beginning, the library was housed in a small room in the Main Block and there were only 332 books, two dailies and their weeklies in the library. Now (as on 30.11.2006) it has a collection of 45000 books,89 academic journals, 50 periodicals, including career magazines, and 10 newspapers. In addition it has a collection of about 200 CD ROMS.
At present, the library is functioning as two separate units, viz. Central Library and Department Libraries. Realizing the effectiveness of a Centralized Library set up and upholding the true spirit of the Government directions in this respect, more Department libraries are being centralized. The Department Libraries of Commerce, History and Political Science have already been centralized at various points of time. However, the present building in which the Central Library is housed suffers from lack of space for accommodating all the Department Libraries.
