The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life. Norman Cousins
A Library is a repository of academic wealth and is emblematic of any educational institute’s intellectual and scholarly excellence. The Central Library of IIT Bhubaneswar, though in its infancy, boasts of an excellent collection of books, journals and magazines from all spheres and an academic atmosphere that stimulates the young minds to think beyond the confinements of texts. A state of the art, hybrid library, its academic resources include database both CD-ROMs and online which are made available through the Institute’s network. Users can access the online database and also find out the real-time availability of library materials from their own computer terminals.

Besides, the Central Library is a fully air conditioned, eco-compatible, tastefully decorated breathing space that provides a break from monotony and freedom to Students Societies and its members to meet, ponder, contemplate and deliberate over subject matters.
