Serving Our Community
Pequot Library is proud to serve all residents of Fairfield thanks in large part to the Town of Fairfield municipal appropriation in each year’s operating budget helping to support 25-30% of our annual costs, including buying books for the circulating collection, funding a portion of professional staff costs, financing a portion of maintenance of our facility, and supporting quality education programs, school tours, care of the Special Collections, and other day-to-day operational expenses associated with direct services to visitors of all ages.
A public association library, we proudly partner with our colleagues at the other two public libraries in the town of Fairfield, Fairfield Main Library and Fairfield Woods Branch, to share and circulate our collection of lending items through a collaborative singular lending service and catalog.
“I love Pequot and how it strives to be an important member of the Fairfield community.”
We go beyond our four walls to engage, educate, and inspire the community. We offer books at the Southport Train Station year-round, and in the Summer we have book carts at Lake Mohegan and Jennings Beach. We take our children’s and adult programs into the surrounding area through storytimes with partnering organizations, and lectures and presentations about the history of Southport. We participate with Town of Fairfield Chamber of Commerce events and work with local universities and zoos.For More Information
