Q: Can I take a tour of the Sterling Memorial Library stacks?

Due to changes as a result of COVID-19, library tours are not currently being offered. Instead, we recommend you reach out to your Personal Librarian or Subject Specialist Librarian for information on how to use and explore Yale library.


At the beginning of each semester, undergraduate students have a chance to tour one of Yale's most iconic buildings: Sterling Memorial Library.

These one-hour tours explore library study spaces and the book stacks, a 15-story tower that holds close to 4 million books. You will also learn about the building's history (hint: it's not as old as you might think).
