The idea of putting up a library building began as far back as the early 1970s under the leadership of Dean Sofie Catbagan.  One million Pesos from the national government was appropriated in 1981 for the first phase of the construction of a new building.  But due to lack of budget, the work was stopped.

It was in 1985 that the construction resumed under the administration of Dean Patricio Lazaro. The new building, three times bigger than the old one, had a floor area of 1,536 sq. m., was occupied in 1988.  Under the supervision of Mrs. Corazon Estavillo and followed by Mrs. Victoria Gandeza, the library expanded its services to students and faculty and new sections were established.

The 1990 earthquake damaged the then newly constructed library building.  The library was transferred to the College Auditorium until a new building was erected in 1992.  This 2-storey library building contains the 62,000 plus collection, the different sections, and a wide reading area.  In August 2009, a 3-floor extension of the library was completed.  First floor housed the serials, binding, and photocopying area; the second floor housed the head librarian’s office, multipurpose room, baggage area, additional restrooms, and lobby; and the third floor is occupied by the Cordillera Special Collections Library, the Internet area, the Multimedia room and additional reading area.
