The Study Rooms (308) operating hours are from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The Collection does not circulate and requires a NYPL Library Card for admission. If you do not have a card, you can apply for one online. The process is brief and the card can be retrieved on the day of your visit.
