The university’s Central Library was officially established in 1987 after the foundation of the university. Four years later, it began gradually to pursue its targets with the increase of its financial status. On 2007, the Central Library was relocated in a new building at the university campus.
The library offers in and out book, theses and periodical lending-service as well as photocopying and electronic search engine services. It persistently seeks to coordinate with other university libraries in both Arab and non-Arab countries to work collaboratively on informative projects for the benefit of the University of Kufa and the scientific research programs followed there.
