Hidalgo Library in Brooklyn and the Extension Center Library on the Manhattan campus serve the needs of the College's educational programs by providing additional resources which support the many programs and courses offered as well as enhancing student learning in associated fields. The library carries a collection of over 11,000 physical titles or 19,000 volumes, over 85,000 electronic books, and 31 full text electronic databases that supports all disciplines. In addition, periodicals, professional journals, and internet access provide major academic resources. The library maintains web pages which provide easy access to the library resources. Copy machines, televisions, computers and Wi-Fi are available for student use. Both libraries are enhanced by study carrels, group tables and computer workstations. ASA's MLS librarians provide a wide range of services to faculty, staff and students, including reference help to find information for research papers; assistance with electronic library resources, and inter-library loan; and workshops on a variety of information subjects.

The ASA library was recognized as an Advanced Electronic Doorway Library by the New York State Education Department, the Board of Regents and the New York State Library, in testimony to the extensive collection of electronic resources which it makes available on campus or other locations such as home or workplace.
