  • Library Materials Due While the Library is Closed While the library is closed, NO FINES will be charged on any overdue items. We are accepting returns in the book drop, but feel free to keep any items you have out until the library reopens. Items can be renewed by accessing your account or by sending an email to circ@newfairfieldlibrary.org.  Again as I stated NO FINES will be charged while we are closed.
