The most important thing about SNAL is that it has a rich collection of books, journals & other reading materials (both electronic & non-electronic) which are the main sources of knowledge. Moreover, it provides a really quiet and calm environment for reading. Most of the students visit the library to take reference for their study materials and to take notes but also others come for personal studying. Time spent in a library is a wise investment and I feel that the contribution of this library towards making a literate and conscious generation is unmatched.
