Charles P. Stevenson Jr. Library

Information Desk Phone: 7281



The Stevenson Library and Bard Information Technology Services together apply emerging media to teaching, learning and related information services

Stevenson Library, built with the generous support and encouragement of Charles P. Stevenson, Jr., is Bard’s main library. Located on the Annandale campus, it consists of three buildings: Hoffman, built in 1895; Kellogg added in 1973; and the Stevenson addition, designed by Robert Venturi , which opened in 1993. Other Bard College libraries include: The Levy Economics Institute Library and the Center for Curatorial Studies Library on the Annandale campus, and the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture Library in New York City. The collections of all four libraries are included in our catalog.

Our mission is to be an active partner in the intellectual work of Bard's students, faculty, and staff. We strive to develop collections, services, and partnerships that help all users become more resourceful, more independent and more original scholars. We take a campus leadership role in thoughtfully applying emerging media to the task of turning information into knowledge.

We actively promote a variety of resource sharing relationships (ConnectNY , the Oberlin Group Libraries and Southeastern New York Library Resources Council)  with regional and national partners designed to bring considerably expanded collections of books, journals and digital resources to the campus community.

Through the College Archives and Special Collections we continue to collect and create easy and comprehensive access to a variety of historical documents, images, and recordings that tell the story of the College, and to actively promote their use as teaching and learning resources.
