The National Library is the biggest library in the country with a fairly large collection of reading materials, large contingent of professionally qualified personnel and varied kind of readers.
The Library started its journey with the opening of the Calcutta Public Library in March 1836 at 13 Esplanade Row, a portion of the house of Dr Francis Pemble Strong, Civil Surgeon of 24 Parganas, Bengal. The Library made significant landmarks in the history of library movement in India. Peary Chand Mitra, who worked as Sub-Librarian in 1836, became Librarian in 1848, printed the Catalogue of the Calcutta Public Library, and in 1855 he brought out a supplementary volume to the first Classified Catalogue, the first of such kind in India.
