Kisong Kim reading books in library

Here’s what they’re saying about us!

“All of the librarians are well-versed in academic research and are more than willing to go above and beyond what students ask of them.” (St. John’s undergraduate student)

“While it is the library’s academic usefulness that draws people from all over the world, it is the librarians who work there that causes students to return.” (St. John’s graduate student) 

“During my time at the St. John’s University library, I encountered not only current students taking advantage of the quiet spaces and abundant resources, but also innumerable alumni and visiting scholars.” (former St. John’s graduate assistant)
