The library came into existence when Maseno University College was established in 1990 and was the successor to libraries that were used by the predecessor Colleges. These were the College Campus Library previously used by the Government Training Institute and the Scriba Library formerly for the Siriba Teachers Training College.

The two Libraries had a total seating capacity of 350 which was not enough to accommodate the increasing number of students. This led to the creation of the School of Graduate Studies Library and the Resource Centre Library. With the expansion of the University, the Library has now extended its services to Kisumu and Homa Bay at the Kisumu City Campus Library and the Homa Bay Teaching and Learning Centre Library respectively. These Libraries have content for all subject areas taught at their respective campuses.
