Being a Media College, one of the strengths of our Library is our Digital Library section, where films, music and reference audio-visual materials are available. Inside the Library we have installed a `Poetry Wall’, a space for the occasional meetings of the `Writer’s Forum’, poetry recital by students, staff and sometimes by a guest poet or writer.
