Library Access & Circulation

Visitor Access Note

Princeton University Library is once again able to welcome visitors. Sponsored visitor forms are no longer required, but please note the University’s visitor policy as it applies to Covid-19. Visitors to Firestone Library should stop by the lobby’s Access Desk during open hours to learn more about their options for access. If you have questions about visitor access to a particular branch, please reach out to them directly.


The Princeton University Library serves the teaching, research and scholarly activities of the University faculty, students, and staff. Access and borrowing privileges are provided to individuals who hold a valid Princeton University identification card (TigerCard) with photograph. 

Affiliate Card Holder Update

TigerCard holders, including eligible family members and those assigned a TigerCard when they began employment at an affiliate organization, are once again welcome in the Library. To regain access to Library buildings and borrowing privileges, please complete this Covid-19 vaccination attestation form. Please allow two business days for Library access to be reactivated. If you do not yet have a Library account for borrowing privileges, please contact Firestone Circulation at fstcirc@princeton.edu.
