"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library." ― Jorge Luis Borges, author of The Library of Babel
The Central Library of Raja Peary Mohan College
The Central Library of Raja Peary Mohan College is situated in the 3rd Floor of the old building (accessible by lift and stairs) with a beautiful overview of the Hooghly river and Dakshineswar Temple.
The Library was established way back in the year 1927 with about 1000 books, mostly obtained through donations from the founder members. For several years, the library was located in one of the small classrooms of the earlier hostel building. However, with the passage of time, as the number of books increased, the library had to be shifted to a larger hall in Room No. 101. In 1963 a separate library in the 3rd floor became functional in fulfilling the long-standing academic hunger of all categories of our users.
