This library is not for the people having less money, students and research scholars.Money is more important for them and they are doing good business with library actually. They don't know the value of time as well. Better to go Tribal Research Centre and HADP office for tribal studies, far better than this library. Please appoint people who understands the value of books and research more than money. The behaviour of some people were also not good there. It's a terrible experience for me.

Just by gazing at the building, you'll feel like travelling back in time to the colonial era. The building is a magnificent epitome of British construction and still holds the old charm. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to enter as I didn't had a membership with them.

For anyone who enjoys books or libraries the Niligari library is a must visit. It was one of the highlights of my tour of south India.
The atmosphere in this wonderful Gothic style building is wonderful and well worth experiencing.
The staff were very welcoming and we toured the building with our guide.
I wanted to spend far more time there just looking at books and soaking up the ambience.
I held my first ever original copy of Punch magazine and sat in a chair staring at a wonderful painting of Queen Victoria , a painting with its own fascinating Indian history.
