About Library

St Philomena College was founded in 1958 by Msgr Fr Antony Patrao, a missionary, who conscientiously believed that education was the best means of empowerment. His conviction that the religious, spiritual, social and economic interest of the students could be best served through education made this region an educational hub. Even in the nascent stages of its growth the College showed all the signs of becoming a centre of excellence. A fully fledged centre of excellence is yet to be realized, but efforts towards this end have not ceased.

St Philomena College Post Graduate Library was established in 2011-2012. Post Graduate Centre is offering seven P.G Courses. They are MSW, M.Com. M.Sc. (Physics), M.Sc. (Mathematics), M.Sc. (Computer Science) and M.A (Economics).

The Library functions from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm on all working days (Monday to Friday) and on Saturday from 8.30 am to 2.00pm.

Library is located on ground floor of the P.G building in a 3353.59Sq.Ft/311.67Sq.Mt. area with good lighting and ventilation. At present we have total collection of more than 8480+ books. We follow Dewey decimal classification system.
