Parsons Paris Library


The Parsons Paris Library in Room 303 offers students a small but developing collection of books relevant to all of the disciplines taught at the school. It includes most of the required and recommended texts for each Parsons Parsis class as well as essential references suggested by faculty.

Both graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to check out books every weekday between 11:40 and 12:40 and 18:00-19:00. All students and faculty can borrow books for a two-week period.

The library is open to undergrads during the hours listed above, and otherwise serves as a quiet space for grad students to study.

The library is an excellent place to start off your research and discover off-campus library resources. During library hours the library assistants will be on-hand to answer your questions and give advice.

The library is also available as a venue for small events — reading clubs, literary salons, readings by a favorite author — so please contact us with your ideas or proposals. We’ll be happy to help you put something together.

If you have any questions or suggestions concerning the library, please email Gabriel Wick at
