  • This library is not for the people having less money, students and research scholars.Money is more important for them and they are doing good business with library actually. They don't know the value of time as well. Better to go Tribal Research Centre and HADP office for tribal studies, far better than this library. Please appoint people who understands the value of books and research rather than money. The behaviour of some people were also not good there. It's a terrible experience for me.

  • Good library and is well maintained. The library has also updated all its books.It also has a kids section for reading.

  • Wide range of books available here
