The books in the library of Balvant Parekh Centre cover a wide range of subjects and areas. Selected and put together with a lot of care, this collection is updated regularly. The library has general and specialized sections. Books from the general section comprising fiction, poetry, biography, autobiography, etc. could be borrowed by life members who are residents of Baroda; each member is entitled to borrow one book at a time for a period of maximum two weeks on payment of Rs. 250 as refundable deposit. Books from the specialized section are to be read in the library and cannot be borrowed.
Please note that the Centre does not allow Xeroxing of books of its Library since most of the books are paperback editions. Photocopying, besides being a violation of copyright laws, causes damage to books, especially to the binding. We regret the inconvenience.
The well-lit and spacious reading room of the library is open to the members of the Centre.
