Use of the Fairfield Museum’s Library is free for Museum members. Non-members are asked to pay a $5 daily admission fee. All visitors are asked to fill out the registration form and observe the rules for use of materials.
A self-service photocopier is available for our registered patrons in the library lobby. Please refer to the posted fees and guidelines about which materials may be copied. For other materials, we offer scanning services (see details here). Please note we do not allow personal scanning or photography of any kind of our collections.
