Welcome to StoryWalk®at Fairbury City Park
A Storywalk® combines physical activity with books to help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for all! It begins on the southeast side of the Frontier Fun Park near the gravel parking lot. From there, follow the story by walking around the circle!
New at the Storywalk®: Look for the letters on the book pages. String them together to learn the Storywalk Phrase. When you know the phrase, come to the library, tell a librarian, and get a small prize!

Clank! Rattle! Bang!
Who’s making all that noise?

Would you like to explore historic editions of the Fairbury Journal-News from the comfort of your home with just your library card? Well, now you can!
The Library is partnering with Newspaper Archives to digitize old issues of the newspaper currently available on microfilm that will then be available through our library’s subscription.
The project was initiated, and partially funded, by a former Fairbury resident. This is not a library funded project, so the remainder of the funds need to be raised through private donations. If you would like to help, donations can be made to the Fairbury Public Library Foundation and dropped off at the library.
