Tisch Family Library

Centrally located on the first floor of the Tisch Schoolhouse, the Tisch Family Library is the second-busiest place on campus! The library provides a welcoming setting for our students to conduct research for a project or assignment, study individually or as part of a group, work collaboratively on a small-group project, or just spend some quiet downtime between classes. The library features:

  • A dedicated Quiet Room where students can read, study or complete assignments on their own

  • Daytime and evening study hall hours

  • A  new Writing Lab where students can request help with written assignments

  • A gallery space showcasing student, alumni and faculty art

Our professional and responsive library staff are always ready to help students navigate The Gunnery’s’ diverse and substantial print and digital collection. Students can access digital resources remotely using the dedicated search tool on the library’s internal website. 

What will you find at the library?

  • More than 6,499 print titles

  • Access to 75 online databases

  • Current subscriptions to 50 national and international newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times

  • A popular magazine database with access to 80 titles, thousands of additional magazines and journals

  • A collection of 140,000 e-books that is continually updated

The Paula and George Krimsky Archives & Special Collections, located on the lower level, houses letters, photographs, publications and documents that tell the story of The Gunnery from the 18th century to today.
