Library

Library of a college is an essential pre-requisite for successful implementation of quality higher educational programmes and is the epicenter of a college. The central library of our college is one of the best college libraries in Lakhimpur district in providing efficient service to the readers. It is a place of great attraction to all. The library is equipped with a very user friendly and supportive staff.

The library of L.T.K. College was founded at the time of the inception of the college. Initially it was housed in a spacious single room of the old Assam type college building. In the year 2005, the library was shifted to RCC office building constructed under Buniyad Scheme, Govt. of Assam. During that period, the library accommodated about 13000 books. During the last ten years the numbers of book in the library have been increasing with the growing numbers of users. At present the library is shifted to the top floor of the newly constructed RCC building under UGC Development Fund and renamed as "Central Library cum Museum".
