About us library

Meiktila Degree College was founded as a Regional College of Mandalay District on the 23th of May, 1977. Although it was established in the early days of 1977, the library could be officially opened as the Meiktila University Library only in 1985. In 1980, a room of Dakkhina Hall in Basic Education High School No.1 (Meiktila) was used as a reading room. When the departments of teaching and administration of No.1 High School were moved to No.4 Basic Education High School in 1981, the reading room was also shifted there.
In 1995, the library was opened at the two-storey building (50'-30'). Then it was with the required facilities, except for sufficient library staff. Later, some skilled staff in library study could be appointed there. Gradually, it became a library with many books, catalogs, cabinets (uufbdeuf) counters and reading rooms.
