Welcome to the Bank Street Library

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.

From Berlin to Bank Street Library

My name is Alina. I’m from Berlin, Germany and I’m here at Bank Street Library for an internship. In 2015 I did my master’s degree in media studies. After two years of working in online marketing I decided to study again. So I started to study library information science at the FH Potsdam. Potsdam is very close to Berlin. It’s a one hour trip by train from where I live to the FH (University of Applied Science).
