Using The Library

We seek to enrich lives by fostering diverse opportunities for all people to read, learn, and connect. All you need to get started is a library card. Library cards are free to residents of Fairfield County and many outlying areas. Learn how to use the library and get the most out of your library card here.

Library Cards

You can get a library card at any of our locations. All you need is a photo ID that lists your name and current address. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who can show identification.
