Fairfield Public Library
General Loan Policies

You are responsible for all materials checked out on your library card. Always present your card to borrow materials, or pay $1.00 at the time of checkout if you forget to bring your card to the library. Do not let anyone else use your card, and do not attempt to use someone else’s card. To avoid a returned mail charge, please notify the library if your address changes.

Returns: An after-hours return slot is located in the alley on the south side of the library building. To avoid overdue charges, return materials by midnight of their due date.

Overdue fines: After the grace period, a daily fine is charged on each item starting from the day it was due. In other words, once you exceed the grace period, you must pay fines from the original due date.
