lined books on a bookshelf Arizona State University is set to resume on-campus, in-person classes on August 20, 2020. In preparation, the ASU Library has begun a phased re-opening of its eight libraries:

August 6: Music Library

August 10: Fletcher Library and Noble Library

August 13: Downtown Phoenix campus Library and Polytechnic campus Library

August 17: Hayden Library

August 20: Design and the Arts Library

In coordination with the university's COVID-19 precautions, a Sun Card will be required to enter all libraries, as access will be limited to ASU students, faculty and staff. Non-ASU visitors are welcome by appointment only.

Those in the ASU community are encouraged to check library hours before making their visit, as ASU Library operational hours will differ from previous academic years.

In addition to the university’s face covering requirement, the ASU Library has put into place a number of safety precautions around the use of shared space. (Read: What to expect when visiting the library this fall)
