Our Vision
The Fairhope Public Library will serve our community as a guide to world-wide information,
 a center for learning activities, and a source for leisure materials.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Fairhope Public Library is to provide equal access to information for the Fairhope community by sustaining and energizing the intellectual, cultural, educational, and recreational life of the community. The Library serves all ages, encourages the love of reading and the pursuit of knowledge, and champions democracy by fostering the free exchange of ideas.
