Per AFI 34-101 16.1. Program Overview. AF libraries are a MWR program providing information resources, technical services, and meeting space to military installations. AF libraries provide the military community with social support that fosters military institutional values, culture and heritage. AF libraries also contribute to teambuilding, unit cohesion, trust, resiliency and readiness of Airmen. AF libraries also support military personnel assigned to contingency operations and remote sites. Finally, AF libraries provide services and support to Airmen pursuing professional military and voluntary education as well as to military families who choose to homeschool their children. All Regular AF installations must have a library capability supporting one of the approved AF models.
16.7 Customer Eligibility. Eligible patrons register at their installation library in order to access the network, receive services, and use databases. Eligible temporary duty personnel and personnel on leave may register and use AF libraries at their temporary duty or travel locations. Non-DoD personnel enrolled in an AF or DoD sponsored education program may use library services when agreed to and approved by a memorandum of understanding between the installation and educational institution and when showing proof of current enrollment.
