FSU Libraries is excited to open its doors to students and faculty for the fall semester. Visit https://www.lib.fsu.edu/hours for our fall semester hours. In order to provide our campus community with a safe experience, we’ve made a few changes. Below is a brief overview of what to expect when you visit.
This video shows how to safely enter and exit the Libraries:
We ask that everyone in the Libraries follow our reopening guidelines, as follows:
- Maintain social distancing by staying at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people.

- One patron in the elevator at a time is recommended. No more than three people are allowed in the elevator at a time.
- Keep as much distance from others as possible when using stairwells.
- Clean study areas before and after use. Sanitizing wipes are available in these areas.
- When using cleaning supplies, follow the precautions, application directions, and contact time according to instructions. This applies to: disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizers, disposable cleaning towels, and hand soap.
- Properly dispose of any wipes or cleaning supplies after cleaning and disinfection.

We’ve also made a few changes to our spaces, which include:
