has been maintaining a library since its inception. Its collection was initially confined to a few books and journals, stacked in one or two book-cases. In 1941, Dr. Barid Baran Mukherjee gifted over 33,000 volumes to the library.

Since then its collection has grown steadily even as the Institute’s location changed to 4A, Wellington Square, then to 111 Russa Road, and finally to its current permanent premises at Gol Park in November 1961.

The library at Gol Park was planned by a group of experts under the leadership of Shri B.S. Keshavan, the first librarian of the National Library of India. In the late 1990s, a need was felt to further increase library space to meet the ever-increasing demands of its members. Revered Swami Lokeswarananda, the then Secretary of the Institute, initiated the acquisition of property adjacent to the Institute which was finalized during the tenure of Revered Swami Prabhananda as Secretary. Work on the annexe building began after most Revered Swami Ranganathananda, the 13th President of the Ramakrishna Order, laid the foundation stone on May 15, 2002. The annexe was completed and formally inaugurated by most Revered Swami Gahanananda, the 14th President of the Ramakrishna Order, on November 6, 2005.

The Library has three wings – (i) General Librar(ii) Children’s Library and (iii) Junior Library. The library also oversees the responsibilities of other departmental libraries of the Institute. Professionally managed, the library ranks foremost among the public libraries in Eastern India.
