The HCC Library is the main pivot around which academic life revolves within the university community. The library has a very effective selection and acquisition system, which is done in consultation with the faculty that makes it possible to have a balanced collection of books/materials that best fit all disciplines offered by the University College. The library has an extensive collection of books, periodicals as well as electronic resources provided through the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Ghana (CARLIGH).

One distinctive feature of the HCC library is the existence of an electronic library (E-library) which complements the use of print materials. The E-library contains a wide selection of books on all subject areas which are made available to community members, irrespective of location. Additionally, a variety of local as well as international periodicals are available to keep the university community abreast with contemporary issues.
