Why name is “Central Library”

Dear All,

Perhaps i am asking very silly question but this question came in my mind so i would like to know some explanations on below:

1. Why we name any Institute/University main Library as central Library? and what is the meaning of Central Library?

2. If the name of Central library has been given name in honor of any person than why “Central” world is included like Mahatma Gandhi Central Library, Biju Patnaik Central Library etc. my view is why it is not only Mahatma Gandhi Library or Biju Patnaik Library?

Please explain to me the differences between above?

Thanking You.
