Friends of the Library

The bookstore is closed indefinitely due to the on-going pandemic. We do have a few books for sale in the lobby of our Main Library and at most of our branches.

The Friends of the Fairfield County District Library is a nonprofit, educational organization of people who love libraries. The Friends support the library in many ways including volunteering, sponsoring special events and programs, and operating the used bookstore Books & Such. The Friends of the Library also promote community awareness of library services and serve as advocates for adequate funding for public libraries.

Good libraries need good friends. You can become a Friend of the Fairfield County District Library for as little as $5 a year. Print, complete and mail the application, along with your membership dues, to:
