With the new CDC guidelines, we are no longer requesting our patrons wear masks.
However, for the comfort and safety of everyone, we ask that you be respectful of those still wearing one, and continue to socially distance while in the library.

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.

Now available to the public! Use our Maker Space equipment to make a gift, buttons or t-shirts for a special event, or just create something for yourself! Ask library staff how you can get started today!

Button maker: Make pin-back buttons, mirrors, or magnets! Other items available upon request.
Laminator: Make a bookmark and luggage tag!
Endurapress: Create a t-shirt design press it onto a t-shirt or other cotton item
ScanNCut: Create t-shirt designs and make crafts. Great for scrapbooking!
3D Printer (available July 15): Choose your print and watch the 3D printer work

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!

Now Featured:

Flushed with the success of his trailblazing bike ride around the farm, Duck decides he’s ready to drive the tractor. As in the bestselling Duck on a Bike, all the barnyard animals share their humorous comments as they watch Duck do the unthinkable. Then, one by one, they join him on the tractor for a ride!

But what happens when Duck drives the big red tractor through town, past the popular diner where all the locals are having lunch? What will those folks really think when they see Duck and all the other animals riding around on Farmer O’Dell’s tractor?
