Using the Library

Apply for a Library Card

If you are a Fraser resident you may apply for a Fraser library card. Bring in your driver’s license with current Fraser address or photo-id with current proof of Fraser residency. Those who are under 18 must bring a parent/legal guardian to apply.

Pick up an application at the reference desk and fill it out here. Non-Fraser residents that are library members at Suburban Library Cooperative member libraries may also use their cards at the Fraser Public Library. Library cards expire every 3 years. If your information changes, please update your card at the library.

All materials must be picked up and returned to the Fraser Library.

Memorial Books

Many patrons create lasting memories by donating money to the Library in the name of a friend or a loved one. We purchase books and place a bookplate in the front of the book with the name of the person being honored and the person making the contribution.

Book Sale

Book sales are held twice a year in the upstairs meeting room. Donated books and those weeded from the collection are always for sale. There is an ongoing book sale in the Book Nook. All proceeds go to the Friends of the Fraser Public Library for library upgrades.

Library Programs

Programs for adults and children are held throughout the year at Fraser Public Library. Check the Library calendar for program information, dates and times, etc.
