Public Libraries

At this time the FAU Libraries are closed.  A plan for reopening is being reviewed by the University.

The well-being of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and we have adjusted our visitor experience to meet new health and safety guidelines. During the initial reopening of our library facilities and to comply with social distancing guidelines, there will be a limited number of seats available and those seats will necessarily be limited to students and faculty of FAU and Palm Beach State College. Entrance to the libraries will be strictly controlled by card swipe access and we will initially not be able to accommodate the general public.  While we work through the challenges to maintain visitor and staff safety, we sincerely apologize to our public patrons. 

Anyone who is a Florida resident is able to utilize the vast network of public libraries for free. Below is information about where these libraries are located. 

If you believe you have a need that can only be met by the FAU Libraries, you are encouraged to submit your request for special accommodation to by email to  

For free access to online resources, please visit the Florida Electronic Library.
