To fulfill its mission, Fairfield Public Library develops and maintains a collection in a wide variety of formats and provides other means of information access.  A competent staff is employed to develop, interpret and disseminate the collection.  We identify the community’s information needs and strive to meet them.

The library provides physical facilities and technologies that enable patrons to enjoy an actively-used collection and up-to-date services. We partner with other local agencies, the State Library of Iowa, and WorldCat to achieve our goals.
