The John McEnroe Library was established in 1994 with a generous grant from the John McEnroe Foundation.

The New York Studio School’s John McEnroe Library offers research services and provides access to a wide range of materials through its print collections of monographs, exhibition catalogs, periodicals, and archival collections; as well as access to its online catalog, online databases, Evening Lecture Series video archive, slide film collection of art historical images and digital archival collections including unpublished materials related to the School’s history.

There are currently four computers available in the Library for student use, all of which allow access to and printing from the Internet. Students are encouraged to use the Library for visual research, studying, reading, and watching or listening to lectures from the Lecture Archive.

Library hours change each semester and during marathons and school breaks. The Library is open to alumni and the public on an appointment-only basis. To make an appointment, please email Librarian Lauren Allshouse

Orientation sessions are held at the beginning of the fall semester for all students, and on an individual basis thereafter.
