Fairview Branch Library

The Fairview Branch, located in the heart of the Sunset Park neighborhood, will reopen on November 1, 2022 via Open+, a comprehensive self-service model providing controlled access to the library.

Beginning November 1, library cardholders who are pre-approved may access the branch Tuesdays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Self-Service Hours allow users to pick up items on reserve, use the library space, access materials and resources, and use a computer.

Registration is required. Register online. In 1-2 days, you will receive an email confirming your registration. Patrons who already have self-service access at the Ocean Park Branch do not need to register again.

Designed by architect Weldon Fulton in the 1950s, The Fairview Branch is a classic mid-century modern building. The original furnishings came from Eames, Knoll Associates, and Remington Rand. A community room was added in 1978 and other facility improvements were made in 2002 and 2016.
