The front door of the library on Sesame Street as seen in Episode 4135.

The Sesame Street Library is a common point of interest on Sesame Street, staffed by a number of Librarians.

It first opened in Episode 0290 (1971) and was originally located next to Hooper's Store, in the spot that has since housed the Fix-It Shop and Mail It Shop. Known as the Lending Library, there were books both indoors and outdoors, and there was also a large children's section. All the residents of Sesame Street would come to borrow books. Maria worked there as a part-time job when she was still in school, while Grover would often come and help out.

Later, when the Fix-It Shop came along, the library shifted to other locations; in particular, the one in which Linda worked beginning in Episode 1868. Some of them, as seen in various storybooks, were a enough of a distance from Sesame Street that a certain amount of traveling was required to reach them. A map shown in Episode 3106 establishes the library as across the street from Big Bird's nest. Linda's assistants have included Micki, Lisa, and Tico. According to Episode 2546, the library is open from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday.

In Season 38, the library was located eight paces from the front of the Fix-It Shop (Episode 4135) and was shown to be directly next to the Subway entrance in One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure. This particular space was later occupied by a Flower Shop and a Bike Shop.

In "Honk If You Love Libraries" (Episode 4911), the library is depicted being in the arbor, with several bookshelves and a media center set up in the area; Francine Lloyd Wright is on the staff, while Grover appears as a self-proclaimed library expert.
