Gopal Krishna Gokhale College was established in 1950 at Kagal, a rural town 16 Km. away in south from Kolhapur.  The founder members were the two giants in the educational field viz Prin. M. R. Desai and Prin. Br. Balasaheb Khardekar. College library was established since inception of the college i.e. in 1950.  As it was difficult to run a college at a rural area like Kagal, it was shifted to Kolhapur in 1954 and along with it the library.  The two founder members gave shape to the library by collecting various books on all branches of knowledge from various parts of India and abroad.  Due to that, the library is having a very rich collection and in true sense it is a centre for study, reference and information.   Click to show  more details .......
