On 1st June 2012 the new library of the KAIPTC has been inaugurated with a grand ceremony which was attended by the Ghanaian Minister of Defense, Lt General (rtd) John H. Smith and Commandant Air Vice Marshal Christian Dovlo. Germany is co-financing the library with 600.000,- € and provided mainly furniture, books, magazines and e-licences. Italy funded the construction of the new building and the USA financed the IT-equipment of the library. Since the KAIPTC has received accreditation as a tertiary learning institute in 2011, the new library has become even more important.
