Full Description

With the inauguration of new State Bank Building at I.I. Chundrigar Road in 1961, Library was shifted to its 5th floor and remained there until 1995 when due to space constraints it had to move to an adjacent building that was originally constructed for Imperial Reserve Bank of India. On 22nd November 2005, Library witnessed its third time shifting to the Bank Annexe renovated for the purpose of establishing a Learning Resource Centre (LRC). The ground and first floors of LRC are presently occupied by the Library. 

Since its inception, Library remained administratively associated with Research Department. However, as a result of restructuring and business process reengineering in SBP in 2005, it was placed under Corporate Services Department (CSD).
