Welcome to the Fairfax Library! I am excited to be a member of this community, and part of our fantastic staff delivering excellent and dynamic customer service to every visitor. Our branch features a monthly art exhibit, comfortable seating inside or on the deck, and a beautiful memorial garden out back. Thanks to the support of our Friends of the Library we have new carpeting and a well-used Teen area. From this site you can view our programs, search our catalog, and discover ways to support your library. We look forward to seeing you in person during our open hours. - Margaret Miles, Branch Manager
