The SMEF’s Brick Group of Institute’s library was established in the year 2013. Since then library has made consistent progress in terms of collection of books, magazines, journals, CD’s, and provision of required services and infrastructure. Institute Library is situated on the first floor of the college building. Total area of library is 189 sq. mtr with seating capacity of 40 students. Our library is equipped with rich collection of books on Architecture and Interior design and works of renowned Master Architects and designers. Institute has taken an initiative in setting up of Working Drawing Library which will be formally opened to all architecture students. Institute believes that this is an additional step towards bridging the gap between academics and Profession. In the effort to do so we have collected various projects and their working drawing sets from eminent architects of Pune. These drawings can felicitate students and alumni as reference resource for Architecture and construction details.

1) Taking Library To Classrooms
Institute library has taken a small step for students which is called “Taking library to Classrooms”. Under this initiative committee have fixed magazine/Book stands in studios/classrooms for keeping old issues of magazines so that student’s can browse through them in their free time. This will inculcate the habit of reading books in students.
