How Do I Find Missing Libraries in Figma?

Libraries are an essential part of the Figma design process. They allow designers to quickly and easily access common components and styles, creating consistency in their workflows.

However, sometimes a library may go missing or become inaccessible due to various reasons. If you’re unable to find a missing library in Figma, here are some tips to help you locate it.

Check the Library’s Status

The first thing to do when you can’t find a missing library is to check its status on the Figma website. It’s possible that the library has been removed or is no longer supported. You can also check if the library has been moved, renamed, or is currently unavailable due to technical issues.

Search Your Team’s Libraries

It’s possible that the missing library was shared with your team but not with everyone. To find it, search for it in the Libraries page of your team’s workspace. If the library was shared with some people but not all, it should appear here.

Reach Out to Other Team Members

If you still can’t find the missing library after searching your team’s workspace, reach out to other members of your team who may have access to it. Ask them for assistance in locating the library and if they have any insights that could help.

Check Third-Party Sources

If all else fails, try searching on third-party sources such as GitHub or npm for libraries that you may be looking for. There are a lot of open-source libraries available online that could be useful for your project.


Finding a missing library in Figma can be a challenge but with these tips and tricks it doesn’t have to be. Be sure to check its status on Figma’s website, search through your team’s libraries, reach out to other members of your team and check third-party sources as well as open-source libraries available online.
