Fairmont City Library Center is 1 Year Old

On June 6th Fairmont City Library Center located in the American Legion building at 2870 N. 44th St. in Fairmont City, Illinois will celebrate its 1st Birthday.

Last year the Mississippi Valley Library District opened this Library in one of the buildings of the Holy Rosary School in Fairmont City. The small community of 2500 people enjoyed having a library so much that when it was scheduled to close in August, the American Legion offered space for the Library to move into its buiding. It has been a success story ever since -- more books, more audios and dvds, more computers and best of all, more people month after month.

To celebrate the staff at the Fairmont City Library Center will host a Birthday Celebration with treats, games and fun and they are hoping that everyone will stop by.

Come by for the Party!!
