Central Library

Books are our best friends. A good book is an ocean of knowledge. It feeds its readers’ mind and soul, helping them get one step closer to becoming the best version of themselves. Books help us broaden our horizons and develop new perspectives. Books play an important role in a student’s life. To support our students in their journey from becoming knowledge seekers to thinkers, we have amassed a rich collection of books on diverse topics. More than just any other library, the SKD library is a temple for knowledge seekers. It is a place where intellectually famished souls come to drink the nectar of true knowledge. To ensure our students get enough opportunities to broaden their knowledge, we update our collection at regular intervals.
