Summer Reading Program begins

Fairfield Library is full of excitement this summer, especially on Wednesday mornings for the annual Story Time event led by Mary King. The library's Summer Reading Program – which continues through July – kicked off at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 6, with Kayla Lupo as the guest reader.

During Freestone County Fair week the program's guest readers will be:

  •  Miss Texas Morgana Wood – Tuesday, June 12
  •  Fairfield Fire Department – Wednesday, June 20
  •  County Judge Linda Grant – Wednesday, June 27

“We are looking forward to a great time of reading, crafts, and meeting new friends,” said library representatives.



Authors welcomed at Fairfield Library

Fairfield students recently penned books as a special project, which are now displayed at the Fairfield Library. Library patrons can scan the QR code on any book to hear the story read in the author's voice or watch a movie based on the book and created by the author. Last week, students brought their parents to the library on a special Book Mobile bus, which shuttled 1st through 5th grades over from their campuses.

The Fairfield Library is celebrating the success of the second Family Game Night on Friday, April 20. Open to all in the community, a Friday evening will be scheduled quarterly – typically on a third Friday – for families to come and play together, bringing their own games from home or playing with those at the library. The Xbox in the teen area is available, as well as the Lego table, checkers and chest in the main area, and tables set up for small group play in the Community Room. We were excited to see two new families being introduced to the library. We may need to formally appoint 6-year-old Harper Nevill, daughter of Sara and Joni Nevill, as our official greeter/hostess because her winning smile and friendly contact definitely won some hearts!
