Mission Statement

The Fairbury Public Library strives to serve the community of Fairbury and the surrounding areas with educational, technology, and literature resources.


Welcome to Apollo!

The library has a new internal computer system with some new options for patrons. If you have an e-mail address or a cell phone with a text plan you can receive a notice three days ahead of when your books are due as well as be informed of any overdue books or books on hold for you. Online through the card catalog page on this website you can log in to your library account using your card number and password (phone on file) and review books you have out, place holds on titles you want and update your contact information. You can also create a list of books you have read or wish to read using the bookmark option. Questions? Ask a staff person about using Apollo the next time you come to the library.
