• Are You Having Trouble Logging Into Your Library Account?

    We recently had a software upgrade. If you are getting an error message about your library PIN, please convert your PIN to all-caps. If you’ve been using “patron” please re-enter the PIN as PATRON. If you have created your own password it is now case-sensitive and must be typed in exactly as you originally entered it.



    Fairfield Main Library and Fairfield Woods Branch are open for Curbside Service. Fairfield Public card holders can borrow physical items by placing them on hold.

    How to Place a Hold

    Please visit our FAQ for more details.

    Please continue to return all materials to the outside book drops.
    All returned materials will be held for 96 hours before being checked in. Late fees will be waived during this time, but we ask that you return material on or before the due date.
    Holding materials beyond the due date without renewing may impact your ability to place holds, access services or prevent other patrons from borrowing wanted materials.
