Author Night, Volunteer Meeting and more!

Meet Emily March

Come listen to best selling author Emily March speak about fiction writing and publishing followed by a Q and A session with the audience!

She is the author of over thirty novels, including the critically acclaimed Eternity Springs series. Publishers Weekly calls March a “master of delightful banter,” and her heartwarming, emotionally charged stories have been named to Best of the Year lists by Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Romance Writers of America.

A graduate of Texas A&M University, Emily is an avid fan of Aggie sports and her recipe for jalapeño relish has made her a tailgating legend.

1st Quarterly Volunteer Meeting

Please join us Thursday, March 31st, at 7pm for the first in our quarterly Volunteer Meetings! We love our volunteers and we want everyone to feel involved and up to date on what is happening with the library. Whether you are a current volunteer or someone who may be interested in volunteering in the future, please join us.

We will have pizza, beverages (water or soda), updates on the previous year, exciting news for the upcoming months, and–of course–fun games to follow. If you bring a side dish or dessert to share, that would be fantastic, but is in no way required.

All current volunteers who attend will get a FREE library t-shirt! Anyone who isn’t a volunteer yet who fills out an application and attends training within one month of the meeting also gets a free t-shirt! And you all know we have some cool shirts!

For more information, please see our event page:  Quarterly Volunteer Meeting

A Night of Poetry


Designed by 9 year old Noli

Join us Sunday, January 17th at 7pm as we host a Night of Poetry at the Fairmount Community Library.  Our featured poet is Malak Abdallahi.   Malak is a poet and activist who stands up against bigotry and inequality.

Her performance will be followed by an open mic.

Wine and snacks will be provided.

As always, your donations are appreciated.

Fairmount Fall Festival


Because we’ve worked so hard these past few months, we are not canceling this festival in case of rain.  If rain looks imminent on Saturday during the festival, then we’ll move things inside the library itself.  (Minus the bounce house, of course!)

Come have fun in the Fairmount Park before taking the little ones out trick or treating. We will have plenty of games, a bounce house, as well as costume parades for the little ones and for your furry friends!  Mayor Price, our City Council Representative Ann Zadeh will be making appearances as well.  Joel Burns, our much loved former City Council Representative will also be attending.

We are partnering with Ryder, Fixture, Cook’s Children Hospital, Blue Zones Project and the Fairmount Community Garden to bring you an amazing time Saturday, October 31st from 3-6 in Fairmount Park.

This is also a Teal Pumpkin event making it a safe alternative for children with food allergies.

For up to the minute details of the festival as well as exact times of the children’s costume parade and pet parade, please check with us on this link here:  Festival Information
