Thaksin University’s library was established along with the founding of the earlier College of Education, Songkhla on October 1, 1968. At first, it was located in a 2-storey building with an area of approximately 1,080 square meters, called "Library of College of Education, Songkhla" and opened for services in the first semester of the 1969 academic year. Later, when the College was promoted to become "Srinakharinrote University, Songkhla" on June 29, 1974, the library changed its name to the "Central Library".
In 1990 when Srinakharinwirote Unversity, Songkhla has been expanded its operations to an area in Phatthalung Province, more information resources have been accumulated and more service users patronized the library. The building was crowded and became deteriorated; thus, a new 5-storey building has been constructed with an area of about 9,660 square feet and the seating of about 1,200 users. The library was open for services on January 3, 1995 and was renamed "Library Bureau" along with the establishment of Thaksin University.
The library’s mission is to gather information resources in print media, audio-visual media and electronic media. Services are offered in the support of teaching and research to students, lecturers, personnel of the university and individuals as well as members of the collaboration network among libraries of higher educational institutions.
