The first public library in Jammu & Kashmir was established by the then ruler, Maharaja Ranbir Singh in 1879 at Jammu. Named as SRS Library, it was followed by setting up of another library, SPS Library at Srinagar, in 1898 by Maharaja Pratap Singh. In 1904, the Department of Research & Publication was established and, in 1919, the SPS Library was separated from the SPS Museum and brought under the control of the Department of Research and Publication.
