The school has a State- of- the-Art Library which competes with any world class library.  The library is fully computerized with the help of customized library software package which allows library staff to work more efficiently and provide better services. Circulation system is best served whereby students are encouraged to come to the library any day during break time to issue and return books besides regular library class schedules.

The library has twenty eight computers with latest configuration with broad band Internet connection placed on specially designed work stations. Today our society is overloaded with information. To make our students cope up with information load and make them life long learners and critical thinkers, an ‘Information Literacy’ program has been designed for classes VI to XII by the librarian, which is based on CBSE curriculum and is taken up during library class. Students go to Internet and research information for the projects which sharpens their skills to collect, understand, organize, analyze, synthesize and finally present information. Thus the library and library class is more meaningful and result oriented.

For classes Nursery to V, inculcation of reading habits is done through ‘Reading Aloud’,   'Story telling', ‘Quizzes ’and ‘ Online book reading’ etc. The librarian also introduces various competitions like ‘Author Profiles’ and ‘Book Reviews’ in order to evaluate the  reading habits of students. These features have made the library a popular place for students.
