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!

Biweekly Kids Story time

Join Miss Cherie for a kids story time tomorrow (Saturday 2/13) at 9:30 am on Facebook Live. We will be reading the books in the photo above.

The next one will be 2/27 at 9:30 am.

We will read stories, sing songs, and have fun!

Library Littles Craft

Each week there will be a simple craft in the children’s room for any of our Library Littles who visit the library and wish to do it. It is a self-guided craft, meaning parents and kids will do it independently using the instructions, materials and example provided.  Any shareable materials will be sanitized between uses.

Biweekly Take-home Kids Craft

We are still supplying bi-weekly take-home Kids Craft kits that you can pick up at the library during open hours! Our current one is a Paint-Your-Own cloth mask. The tutorial video is up on our Facebook Page.

A new Craft Kit (making photo cards for loved ones) will be available starting next Friday, February 19th, during open hours.

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!
