Library cards

Citizens of Fairbury who reside within the city limits will be issued a borrower’s card, upon application, without a fee. Identification showing name and current Fairbury city address is required. A reference person’s name and phone number is preferred to be listed on the library card application and/or a second phone number where the patron can be reached.  Reference name and phone number can be brought in at a later date and absence of a reference will not hinder library card issuance. Library cards will be mailed to patrons after processing.  New patrons are limited to one item per checkout until they receive and present their library card.

Any person who resides outside the city of Fairbury city limits must pay a $15.00/year fee to use the Library. Families desiring to check out more than the 15 items allowed by this card may purchase up to three additional cards for $5.00 each. Applicant will need to show identification with name and current address.

Children age 3 and above who reside in the city of Fairbury may have their own card with the permission of their parents or legal guardian. Parental signature is required for persons under age 16.
