The Library is open for curbside pickup: Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Oakland County and surrounding areas, FCL is proactively prioritizing the health and safety of our staff and patrons by temporarily closing in-person library service to help mitigate the spread of the virus in our community. The Farmington Community Library has moved back to Phase 2 of our Reopening Plan. Curbside pickup, phone and electronic reference, and outdoor drop boxes will be available while we temporarily close in-person library services.Read more…

Operation Goodybag

Operation Goodybag 2021

All Ages

 

Our traditional Operation Goodybag event looks a little different this year.

 

In addition to everything our local police officers, firefighters, and paramedics do working over the holidays while we’re at home with our families, this year they’ve also had to deal with a lot more emergencies linked to COVID-19.

 

That can be exhausting, so in addition to saying thank you, we also want to do something to give them a smile. We can’t do the traditional decorated goodybags, so this year we’ll do the decorations!

 

More details are on our online calendar. Please consider writing a thank-you letter or creating artwork to drop off at either branch of the Library on:

 

Saturday, January 9, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

 
 

Teen Advisory Board

Grades 6-12

 

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are willing to help plan programs for their peers, step up social media interaction, and make the teen areas of the two branches the best they can be. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours as well as learning skills that will be useful in the future. Oh, and we’re also pretty sure it will be fun…

 

We will meet via Zoom. Please register so we can email you an invitation!

 

Wednesday, Monday, January 11, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

FCL is fine-free!

 

The Farmington Community Library is no longer charging overdue fines! If you need to keep a book or movie a few extra days, or you can’t get to the Library right on time, that’s absolutely okay; we won’t charge you. We just want the book or item back so someone else can enjoy it!

 

Please don’t feel like you have to hurry to return things, especially if you or any member of your household is feeling unwell. We’d like to keep everyone as healthy as possible!

 

For more information on FCL’s Fine-Free Policy, visit our information page.

 

Digital Delights

 

Don’t forget that we have lots of online resources available! We have e-books, e-audiobooks, streaming media, and e-magazines available 24\7. You can find a list of our available apps at www.farmlib.org/digital-library. And if you’re in the mood to learn things, check out Gale Courses and all of our great databases! A Farmington Community Library card is needed to access all digital materials; if you have a card with a different library, check their website for similar resources!
