Girls Higher Secondary School, Baramulla with two Rooms having a Library, Principal Room &amp; Establishment Section. Latter on two buildings were constructed by Higher Education Department on the land of Girls Higher. Secondary School and Library was shifted in other building till the number of books got increased.

In 1998, the library was shifted to pre-fabricated building where it was functioning till December 2008. Meanwhile the college purchased the land with two buildings. Keeping in view, the number of students and improvisation of faculties it became necessary that some separate building should be allotted as a library block to the college.
