Where do I return materials?
When the library is open, you should return materials to the Circulation desk. Please check materials to make sure that you have not left anything important in books and magazines and that the videos are the ones that you checked out. You would be surprised at the things we have found inside of returned books and videos!
When the library is closed, you will need to return materials in the appropriate drop box in front of the library. Please make sure to use the separate drop box for videos. Audio materials may not be returned in a drop box
What if a book is not on the shelf or the library doesn't own it?
If the book is checked out, a reserve can be placed on it for you. When the book comes in you will be notified by mail. If the Library does not own the book, the Reference Staff can help you determine which libraries nearby have the book; or, if you are a Fairfield resident, you can request an interlibrary loan for a small fee. Click here for our on-line ILL request forms. When a book is requested through interlibrary loan, you will be notified when it arrives.
The Library also accepts requests from the public to purchase books.
How many items may I borrow at a time?
There is no limit to the number of items that you can take out.
If I don't live in Fairfield, may I borrow materials from Fairfield Public Library?
Any Connecticut resident who has a valid library card from his or her own town library, may also use that card to borrow materials from Fairfield Public Library.
