The Fairfield Woods Branch Library, like Fairfield Public Library, did not begin where it is now.
The…More Fairfield Woods Branch Library was originally located in the former Andrew Warde High School - now the home of Fairfield Warde High School - from 1956 to 1969. Before then, the PTA at nearby Stratfield School in 1936 opened a library in Stratfield School with 1,000 donated children's books, and a small adult collection of books was housed in a firehouse in Stratfield in the early 1950s.
The Fairfield Woods Branch Library, which opened in 1969, has about 75,000 books and is one of the busiest branch libraries in the state. The librarian at Fairfield Woods Branch Library is Nancy Coriaty.
Fairfield Public Library, one of the busiest libraries in the state, began in 1876 in the Fairfield Academy building…More on Town Green, and the library back then permitted people to borrow one book at a time when the library was open on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. The library, then called Fairfield Memorial Library, had 677 volumes, and it charged people $1 a year to borrow books.
In 1903, a building was erected at the corner of Post Road and Old Post Road in downtown Fairfield and became the library's new home. The town took over operation of the library in 1950, and additions were built in 1930, 1959, 1981 and 2004-05. The library's name was changed to its present name after the town assumed operation of the library.
Today, the library has a state-of-the-art children's department, a teen room, computer lab, gallery space for paintings, several meeting and reading rooms, and an entrance on the side of the building, next to the parking lot. Most of those features were part of the last renovation.
