Our mission is to connect our community through information sharing, fostering communication and enhancing lifelong learning. Read the FCL 2023 Strategic Plan.
A conversation at the Fairmount School PTA meeting in 1955 was the genesis of today’s Fairmount Community Library. The individuals involved put their energies into finding out how and what was necessary to start a library and then proceeded to raise the funding.
The library received an official charter from the State in November of 1956, and in April of 1957 opened its doors.
Since then the library has changed its location twice and remodeled twice to meet the needs of its community.
As a community library, Fairmount encourages an open and friendly atmosphere where people of all ages can find information and entertainment.
Fairmount encourages the belief that both information and entertainment are important to the full development of an individual’s character.
