Welcome to the Fairmount Community Library

A conversation at the Fairmount School PTA meeting in 1955 was the genesis of today's Fairmount Community Library. The individuals involved put their energies into finding out how and what was necessary to start a library and then proceeded to raise the funding.

The library received an official charter from the State in November of 1956, and in April of 1957 opened its doors.
Since then the library has changed its location twice and remodeled twice to meet the needs of its community.
As a small community library, Fairmount encourages an open and friendly atmosphere where people of all ages can find information and entertainment.

Fairmount encourages both aspects in the belief that both information and entertainment are important to the full development of an individual's character.


LittleFree Library @ Sim’s Store in the Camillus Erie Canal Park


TheFairmount Community Library in partnership with the Maxwell Memorial Libraryhave created a “Little Free Library” at the Camillus Erie Canal Park.   What is a "Little Free Library"you may ask?   It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering placewhere people share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basicform, a Little Free Library is a box full of books or other items where anyonemay stop by, pick up a book (or two) and bring back other books to share. It is an extension of Camillus Libraries to offer a way to reach out toour community members who live near the Erie Canal Park.  It is also there for others who use the Parkfor fun and recreation to share with others who do so also.  There is a log book there if you want to signin and leave your comments on what you like about your library andcommunity.
