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.

Stapler

The printers in the Library can staple your assignment and journal article that you need to read in print. Wake up the machine and make sure the stapler icon is green. Place your assignment like this into the slot, and wait. The copier will automatically staple your work. That’s it – very simple and it looks professional.
