“The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may have hope for the future of man.” T.S. Eliot

The Fair Haven Public Library is recommending that all patrons wear a mask but in keeping with CDC and NY State Guidance will not require vaccinated individuals to wear a mask, as our patrons do include a younger audience that is unable to be vaccinated at this time we ask that you continue to maintain social distancing in the library and remain aware of others who may be unvaccinated.


Effective immediately patrons may return items without paying overdue fines

DVDs may be borrowed for 7 days,  Books and other material may be borrowed for 21 days, items will automatically renew if not on hold for another patron.

No fines will accrue on overdue materials (Books, Audiobooks, DVDs, Games, Magazines or other materials)

Items will still have a due date and patrons will receive reminders and overdue notices, and are expected to return items.

Items kept beyond the due date will no accrue fines but will be marked lost after remaining overdue for 60 days.

Patrons will be billed the replacement cost of any lost or damaged items and may be unable to use their library card until the item is returned or paid for.
