We are open!

Fairview Public Library has resumed its regular hours. Patrons are allowed in the library but we are limiting capacity to six patrons at a time to ensure social distancing. Social distancing and masks are required.

Our copy and fax machines are up and running! Black and white copies are 25 cents, full color copies are $1 and fax transmission is $1 per page.

New books arrive every week! Interlibrary loan is also working again, giving our patrons access to books from every library in the system

Hope to see you soon!

We are not accepting book donations at this time

**Please note: we are NOT accepting book donations at this time! This includes leaving boxes of books on our porch (which there are signs asking people not to do), and dropping bags of them inside the library.

You can help us clear more room by stopping in and buying some of the awesome books for sale in our lobby! 😊 Tell a friend! They make fabulous gifts and stocking stuffers, and we have a great variety**

We are always grateful to people for wanting to save/share books (we understand—really!) and for thinking of us, but we have absolutely no room to store extra books right now. Please find other ways to share your books with those who might need them.

Here are some ideas (with the exception of “local libraries”) for you to try in the link below. And as always, before showing up with books at a charity or business, it’s a good idea to call ahead and make sure they are needed there. Even thrift stores are often overrun with book donations, so please call in advance!

Lobby Book Sale

For anyone who doesn’t know, we always have books for sale in the lobby during open hours! We have fiction, non-fiction, YA, and kid’s books! Paperbacks are $0.50, and Hardcovers are $1.00. No tricks here! They’re a great treat for yourself or someone else!

Where in the Library is Skippyjon Jones?

This is Skippyjon Jones, aka, El Skippito.
You can find him reading some of his favorite books when he thinks no one is watching.


Skippy likes to hide around the library and wait for the Library Littles to find him! It’s his favorite game!!


Skippy wants us to give you a clue where he’s hiding now. He knows that October is Fire Safety and Prevention Month. He’s making sure the library is prepared in case of emergency. Come in and see if you can figure out where he is, kids!
