Books and libraries in ancient and medieval India have been developed alongside a strong tradition of oral transmission. This paper will present the invention of script, development of libraries within important educational centers as monasteries, temples and palaces of rulers, and also what we know about their organization, classification and cataloguing system and library staff. It will also discuss the intensely developed production of manuscripts and the special role the book had in the religious life of certain Indian sects.
