The Fairfax Community Library is located at Bellows Free Academy in Fairfax, Vermont. Our physical and mailing address is 75 Hunt St. All Fairfax residents may sign up for a free library card. Non-residents are welcome to use the library and may get a card for a $15/yr. fee. Or, if your home town library is a member of the Homecard System, and your account is in good standing, we will honor your current home library card here.

Winter Weather closings: If school is cancelled in Fairfax, the library will be closed for the day. We will post this on Facebook, VT Grandpa, and our phone message as soon as we know in the morning. (It will not be posted here because the librarian cannot update the webpage from home.) We encourage you to call the library if you are in doubt, before heading out! If school is cancelled and the library is open, after school programs will be cancelled.
It is tax time! Both VT and Federal tax agencies will no longer send multiple copies of forms and instructions to outlets. We have printed out copies of the most common forms - both Federal and Vermont - and made them available on our front counter. The staff is also prepared to assist patrons in accessing government websites for additional forms and instructions. Printing is 10 cents per page.
The forms we have printed out for your convenience are: Federal 1040, 1040-EZ, Schedule A. Vermont PR141 Renter Rebate, IN-111 Income Tax Return, HS-122 Homestead Declaration,
IN-112 Adjustments & Credits, and HI-144 Household Income.
