The Doon Library and Research Center located in Parade Ground is by far Dehradun’s best public library and boasts of a remarkable collection of books. It is a favourite with students preparing for competitive exams. The library endeavours to add new books constantly. But due to its growing collection and popularity, the Library, a single storey building, has been facing a space crunch for quite some time.
But now, thanks to a grant of Rs. 5 crores declared for the Library in the state budget for financial year 2013-14, the Library will be able to actualize its expansion plans. Adding another floor and more books is on the agenda. This up gradation of the public library will go a long way in serving the needs of the book loving public of Dehradun.

Reading Room (for newspapers and magazines): 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on all days
Library & Reading Room (for books and journals): 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon-Saturday
