The decision to set up the Library was reached in 2008 to provide information services in support of the teaching and research needs of the school. In 2011, there was a call for the creation of more departments in the school which brought about the establishment of National Diploma in Marketing. The Library is located behind the Director’s office.  It consists of two large halls which are designated as reading rooms for students and lecturers.
