In-Person Programming

September 7, 2021

We here at the Fairview City Library have temporarily suspended our in-person programming, due to high local Covid19 numbers. As of Wednesday, September 1, 2021, our numbers here in Fairview were 39, and our numbers for Major County were 50.  When our city numbers get back down under 20, we will look at re-starting our in-person programming.  We sure do  miss everyone!  Library Board and Friends of the Library meetings will continue, unless they are cancelled due to lack of quorum. Thanks, and we hope to see you soon!

Tamara Cornelsen, Library Director

About Us

A Brief History…

Before there was a library in Fairview, there was a reading room. Many citizens of Fairview went to the reading room to read the current magazines and books of the era.
The Fairview Municipal Library was founded on April 9th, 1909, and the first library director was Miss Lucas. Children’s services started in earnest in March 1917, with the addition of the “Children’s Hour.” The library moved to the municipal auditorium in 1939. The longest serving librarian was Miss Ula Frost from July 16th, 1912 to her retirement 43 years later in 1955. Under the direction of Dee Wilson, the Fairview Library started offering “Summer Reading Programs” in the summer of 1982.
Motto: The Fairview City Library strives to fulfill the informational needs of all adults and children with the most desirable reading, current educational material, and activities with a friendly, personalized service to all patrons.
