I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library
Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well.
Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
Sacred Heart College, Chalakudy, is an institution managed by the Alvernia province of Franciscan Clarist congregation, affiliated to the University of Calicut and aided by the Kerala government. The College, established in 1980, as a junior college with Pre-degree courses was upgraded to a first grade status in 1991 and is presently offering a five year integrated Psychology course, nine Undergraduate and eight Postgraduate courses.
The library at Sacred Heart College started functioning in 1980 in the college building. Over the years, the library expanded its collection and functions along with the growth of the college. The library was moved to the new building in 1997.
