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 are also events: Library Salons, BookFest @ Bank Street, and the Irma Black Award, to name a few. We hope to see you soon on the 5th Floor.
