Libraries represent man's most successful attempt in democratizing knowledge. In the modern age, a library is regarded as an important social privilege that facilitates not just the reading of books, but a meeting point of different people and different ideas. The library, at Amrita tends to be the epicenter of scholarly debates, literary criticism, and discussions. It boasts of a rich collection of books, journals, magazines and theses from different parts of the world.
The library also organizes activities that promote the endangered habit of reading. In the month of March, World Book Day is celebrated across the globe to inspire love of reading. It is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries all over the world. At Amrita, to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading, the month of March has been designated as the month of books. Quiz, book review and many such contests keep the spirit of competition alive among the young readers.
