Most public libraries are closed during COVID-19 restrictions, but like GSU, most of them are offering online services and materials.

GSU students and employees can get a free Atlanta Fulton Public Library System account online, regardless of where they live. You can use the card for a limited time until you can get to an AFPL branch to show your ID and get a permanently activated card. Apply for an AFPL card here

While we recommend you use GSU's online databases, ebooks, etc for your scholarly research, public libraries have some great online resources especially for leisure and personal interests. 

Some AFPL online resources:

  • ebooks & Audiobooks in Libby/Overdrive
  • Language Learning in Hoopla or Mango Languages
  • Music at Freegal
  • Practice tests at Learning Express Library and Testing & Education Reference Center
