In today’s commercial education, even good quality elementary education is getting worse. Hence middle class, lower middle class and economically deprived class are moving away from the education system. Also in smaller houses it is very difficult for a student to study in peace. Students who are in these adverse situations yet studying hard deserve a better place to study and hence the library. The aim of the organization is through this library students should go for higher education and/or give competitive exams. Library has a very peaceful and nurturing atmosphere. Every student has a separate seating. Students appearing for competitive exams are given books and magazines available at the library. Apart from this internet services and Xerox is also made available.
