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.

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!
Professor Groundhog opens a school so groundhogs can learn to accurately forecast the weather each February. Following along with the amusing cast of students, kids are drawn in by the thoroughly engaging tale while they learn fun facts about different animals (groundhogs in particular), seasons, weather, and predicting the weather. With funny asides and a comic-style approach to the illustrations, this informational story presents a fresh look at Groundhog Day through the eyes of the animals who live it each year.
