A system or computer system can be said to be an electronic device or machine, which accept data, process programs and then produce a result output from the processed as information.
Moreover, they said system is general purpose in use. It handles more volume of data. It is versatile accurate, efficient, very fast etc. when compared with manual approach of carrying out operation owing to the increase in the rate with which a timely and accurate information are being demanded , there is need to provide a system to supply the necessary information where and when it is needed.

Due to problem of lack of prompt information retrieval and time wastage in using the library. In addition due to the cumbersome, in this project computer approach will be used to solve these problems. Each of the manual procedure is analyzed and is programmed using Visual Basic 6.0 in module are linked together in order to have a library system and because of its graphic user interface (G U I) feature displaying pictures and other standard objects. It’s choice for the system designing because it make file organization and calculation easy it’s also a popular language to stimulate most design system, most especially the database facilities so, it can store large volume of data.
The purpose of this project is to examine all the problems that faced both the library personnel especially the librarian, library Assistants, library attendant(s) and the library users, such as provides quick search facility to user who wishes to check for availability of a particular resources, it provides electronic means of storage, It help librarians keep track of library information etc. automated library system
