The Library of FA STU was reopened in 2010 in newly restored premises with a special atmosphere created by the original restored furnishings and wood cladding from the 1950s in harmony with the style of the FA building. Regularly acquired professional literatures, free access to all library stocks, modern library and information services, comfortable study and work area have increased the number of library visitors.
