(Redirected from Backdrop Library)
- This article is about Scratch libraries. For the general programming feature, see Library.
Libraries are sections in the project editor where the user can select a sprite, costume, backdrop, sound, Project Tutorial or extension. In Scratch 1.4, some sprites included in the library had premade scripts. Libraries are useful for those who either cannot create or do not have media to upload.

This library is used to get premade sprites, sometimes including multiple costumes, on projects. There are 339 sprites in the library.
Every library is sorted into categories. The sprites library is sorted into the following categories: All, Animals, People, Fantasy, Dance, Music, Sports, Food, Fashion, and Letters.
This library is used to get premade backdrops on projects. There are 85 backdrops in the library.
The backdrops library is sorted into the following categories: All, Fantasy, Music, Sports, Outdoors, Indoors, Space, Underwater, and Patterns.
This library is used to get pre-made sounds on projects. Sounds can be previewed by moving the mouse over the play button to the right of the desired sound. There are 353 sounds in the library.
The sounds library is separated into the following categories: All, Animals, Effects, Loops, Notes, Percussion, Space, Sports, Voice, and Wacky.
The costumes library has the same features as the sprites library, except that each costume in a sprite is sorted individually and not grouped in a single sprite. There are 886 costumes in the library. It is sorted in the same categories as the sprite library.
In Scratch 3.0, the tab for tutorials was moved to a new library called the Tutorial Library. It is linked from a button at the top bar with a lightbulb. There are a total of 25 tutorials there, which if clicked, returns to the project editor and opens a Project Tutorial with a video that shows the tutorial. Pressing the arrow takes one to a step-by-step instructions area, with a "More Things to Try" at the end.
