Throughout history India, the role of the library was to serve as a starehouse, an archive of manuscripts, art, and important documents. The library was the centre of information revered by most because each contained the foundational building blocks of information for all humanity. In medieval times, books were valuable possessions and these were far too expensive for most people to own. As a result, libraries often turned into collections and store houses of books. A huge turning point in the evolution of libraries was architected in the 21st century. Leading up to today libraries have consisted of large collections of books and other materials.
