* CLOSURE NOTICE * Fair Oaks Library is closed for maintenance due to a burst pipe requiring unanticipated maintenance. There is no known damage to the collection and the Library is tentatively scheduled to re-open on Tuesday, Jan. 30. 

Fair Oaks Library was established in 1909 and settled into its current location in 1976, nestled on top of a hill next to Fair Oaks Park. We are located just off the southwest corner of Fair Oaks and Madison. Featuring Frank Lloyd Wright–style architecture, our library is a striking building surrounded by trees.
