Welcome to Fayetteville Public Library

Whether you’re new to Fayetteville or a current patron looking for additional information about our offerings, here are a few facts to make sure you get the most out of our library’s collections and services.

Get a library card

If you are a resident of Fayetteville you are eligible for a free library card. People who reside in the cities of Rogers, Bentonville or in Washington County are eligible for a free card. Those who work, own property or attend school in Fayetteville are also eligible for a free library card. Others pay an annual fee for a library card. Applicants under the age of 18 will require parent/guardian permission.

If you have questions about residency requirements, please contact us at 479.856.7113 or email us at

How to use your library card

Your library card allows you to check out books and other physical materials from Fayetteville Public Library. Most library items check out for two weeks and can be renewed up to two times as long as there is not a hold on them.

Your library card allows you access to the library’s digital collections including eBooks, magazines, audiobooks, music and streaming video. You can find the library’s digital collections on our databases page.

It will also allow you to log in to our public computers and to check out study rooms.

When prompted to enter your library card, input your full barcode number without spaces. Your pin number, which you will use on our self-checks and research databases, has defaulted to the last four digits of your phone number. When logging into the online catalog to manage your account (ex. holds, renewals and fees), you will be asked to create a unique password.

Remote book drops

We have three remote drops in the ATM lanes at select Bank of Fayetteville locations: 

  • 3120 N. College Ave.
  • 3150 Wedington Dr. 
  • 1846 N Crossover Blvd.
