The Library was established simultaneously with all the other academic departments at Akure in January 1978. It moved from Akure with all other departments to the present Polytechnic permanent site at Ado‑Ekiti in 1983. The Library finally moved from its old temporary building near Abuja male hostel to its new permanent building on 1st April, 2010. The building is located opposite Conference Centre of the Polytechnic, along the School of Engineering road. This new library is very spacious, well ventilated and it can accommodate over one thousand users at a time.
The Polytechnic Digital Library is very rich in print and non-print information resources that are relevant to all the programmes offered by the Federal Polytechnic Ado-Ekiti. As its name applies, The Polytechnic Digital Library has advanced in the digitization of its collections which is currently in vogue across the globe.
