about national library

Though this is not your usual book store exactly, the National Library is one of the best places to check out books which are ancient, out of print or simply difficult to locate nowadays. Step into the place and be greeted by the fragrance of old books book lovers adore, pick up an intriguing monograph or manuscript and be awed by the immensity of the largest library of India! Designated to disseminate,  collect and preserve the printed material produced in the country, this library has a vast collection including Indian books, books in English & Foreign languages, Rare Books, Science and Technology and Indian Official Documents.

National library of kolkata is big enough to consume your fullday, but its worthy. Closed on monday. Coin section is wonderfull. Others are interestin only if you have interest in history and geography. Worth giving a visit.
