The Library and Information Centre : The Central Library of Modern College, Ganesh-Khind was established in the year 1992. Since then library has made consistent progress in terms of our collection of books and the services provided.
It is well equipped with growing number of books, journals, magazines along with Electronic resources like Ebooks, EJournals, Databases, CDs, Library website, Institutional Repository, etc. The entire collection is organized according to DDC (Dewey Decimal Classification) scheme. Library gives Open Access to all the students. Wi-Fi. It is automated with bar code technology and other digital library software. It offers various services along with some innovative practices.

Purpose :
The very purpose of a library is to freely disseminate knowledge. Our library is therefore operated on a need-based approach rather than the usual rules-based treatment given to students everywhere. We allow open access to the collection and encourage students to browse through the stacks.

What we hope to achieve :
  • Optimum utilisation of our existing resources.
  • Adding to the readership numbers every year.
  • Enhancing the reading habit in the students and teachers.
With our continued emphasis on all round personality development, we have made it a point to include books on variety of topics like philosophy, religion, political and social history, biographies of eminent personalities, English, Marathi and Hindi classical literature, etc along with reference sources like encyclopedias, dictionaries, yearbooks, handbooks, books useful for competitive exams. We also have several self help books on personality development, public speaking, improving English writing, and other similar skills.

Library Committee : For smooth functioning of library and development of library an advisory committee has been formed. Different issues of library are discussed in the regular meetings.
