IASE gives great importance to the library as an important source of potent learning. The prolific use of library and active engagement in library reading has been recognized by the Institution as important activities conducive to effective learning. Students are encouraged to make use of their off-class time in the library. A register is placed to record their visits. Students who are identified as needing extra support are provided with reading materials and recommended readings of specialized sections of books.

IASE Library became functional in 1975 along with the institution of the Mizoram Institute of Education. Ever since then, the College Library has grown significantly and its collection of books enlarged and enriched. Presently, there are about 15,100 volumes of books with the numbers multiplying rapidly.
The entire collection of books in the Library can broadly be divided into four categories :-
The rare collection category has a number of very old but highly valued books which are no longer available in the market. The collection of Reference books are rich and varied in nature and caters to the need of all subjects and issues. The Course books as prescribed by the University and other suggested readings are available in the most recent editions. These along with Reference books are directly accessible to the students. The General category has a vast and rich array of books to meet the needs of readers with different tastes and interests. They are classified subject–wise and made accessible not only to students but even to interested outsiders under a properly structured and strictly regulated system of borrowing and lending.
Classification of books in the library is done in order of subjects. For open and easy circulation, a loan Register is maintained where entry of students’ names in the capacity of 125 Nos. is made. This system is considered more practical than the card system as the academic session is short and the batches of students change rapidly.
