Welcome to Auroville Library

The Auroville Library is located on the Crown road near the Solar Kitchen and houses a wide selection of books.

Today it contains 50,000 volumes in ten languages - English, German, French, Tamil, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Spanish, Korean, and Hebrew. The books are sorted by language and topic, following the international standard of the Dewey Decimal Classification. We cover a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction, and there is an almost complete collection of Sri Aurobindo's and Mother's works. We have a separate room for children's literature.

In addition to the books, most of which have been donated over the years, the Auroville Library also maintains a small number of subscriptions to weekly and monthly Indian and international journals.

The Auroville Library is open to Aurovilians, Auroville guests and Auroville workers.
