Library of Catholic University Our Lady of the Good Council was founded in 2004 and contributes to the educational mission of the students through the heritage and its services. The library's heritage is preserved with the utmost care and is constantly updated according to academic requirements, so that the library is always provided with books, periodicals and computer media that provide the necessary support both for teaching, learning and research.
The main mission is to support the teaching and research activities of teachers and students, while respecting the working principles established by IFLA / Unesco Guidelines: (Equality, Impartiality and Continuity, Accessibility, Right of Choice, Participation, Clarity and Transparency, Efficiency and Efficiency)
Today, the book heritage is about 15,000 volumes of books and magazines, inventoried according to the standards established by IFLA (International Association of Libraries).

Donations have made a significant contribution to its growth and enrichment. Donors are our collaborators at the University of Rome, Bari, Milan, the Italian Embassy in Tirana, various publishing houses in Italy and Albania and the same teachers at our University. The fund consists of a wide range of books and non-books, in various languages such as: Albanian, Italian, English, French and German.
