Bank Street Library

Welcome to the Bank Street Library

The Library is home to a children’s collection, a graduate school collection, and electronic resources (databases and computers). We offer spaces for patrons to enjoy books with little ones, work on assignments, and engage in group work. We also host several events: Library Salons, BookFest @ Bank Street, and the Irma Black Award ceremony, to name a few. We hope to see you soon on the 5th floor of Bank Street College.

Off-Campus Access to Databases

  1. Sign-in with your Bank Street email address and Password.
  2. Some online classes have their own special access code.

Creating a Flyer

The key to making a great flyer is, as one student told me “work smarter, don’t work harder… use templates!” Templates take the hard work out of making an eye-catching poster. With a little bit of tweaking here and there you can change text, colors, and create something that is your own.
