* It is not clear for me how this sets the global access level per user.
Shouldnt the facility_levels table have a u_id field, foreign key from users
table? And thus becoming an associative table between users and facilities?

* I may not be fully understanding your problem, but
library_document_user_level shouldn't have a field named fl_f_id, to
identify which facility the document/folder belongs to?
Had it such a field, you could do something like
FOREIGN_KEY (fl_f_id,fl_level) REFERENCES facility_levels (fl_f_id,
Just my two cents
