How Do I Import a Figma Library?

Figma Libraries are an excellent way to save and access design elements in an organized and efficient manner. If you’re working on a project that involves a lot of repeating elements, you can save time by using a Figma Library.

It’s easy to set up and use, but if you’re just getting started, it can be confusing to figure out how to import one. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to get your Figma Library up and running quickly.

Step 1: Find the Library
The first step is to locate the library you want to use. You can find libraries from different sources, including Figma’s own Marketplace or from independent developers. Once you’ve found the library you’d like to use, download the file that contains it.

Step 2: Import into Figma
Once you have the file, open it in Figma. Then select “File” > “Import” > “Library” from the menu bar at the top of your screen.

This will open a window where you can select the file containing the library and click “Open”. Once imported, your library will appear in the left-hand sidebar under “Libraries” with all its elements inside.

Step 3: Use Your Library
Now that your library is imported, you can start using it in your project! To do this, simply drag any of its elements onto your canvas or select them from within the “Libraries” panel on the left-hand sidebar. You’ll also see an icon next to each element which indicates which library it belongs too – this is useful for keeping track of which elements come from which libraries as your project progresses!


Importing a Figma Library is a simple process that can save you time and help keep your projects organized and efficient. All it takes is three easy steps – finding the right library file, importing it into Figma and then dragging its elements onto your canvas or selecting them from within the “Libraries” panel on the left-hand sidebar – and you’ll be ready to start utilizing all of its features in no time!
