Harvard Is for (Library) Lovers

At Harvard there is a lot to love about our campus libraries, which offer miles of books and quiet corners for study. Take a photo tour of some of our favorite spaces to curl up with a book.

All registered Extension School students have access to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Libraries, as well as Harvard's expansive collection of electronic resources. Degree candidates and premedical students with Harvard ID cards have access to most Harvard libraries, as well as borrowing privileges. Visit our Libraries page for more information.
