Facilities: Library

The Madras Club Library is the oldest private library in Chennai. Originally started as a reading room with books, news papers and journals. The formation of a proper library was authorised by the Committee in 1848 with the Secretary being asked to buy books at local auctions.

In 1850, a separate room was built for library and in 1910, a Library Committee was formed and the management of the library was handed over to this Committee.

In the present Club, the library was housed in a small room till 1998 when it was shifted to the present premises in the Office block. The Library houses a collection of over 15,000 books,magazines and movies and has a very eclectic selection.
