Quant a miFort Fairfield had a private library as early as 1880. It became a town-supported library in 1894 with a circulation of 300 books. In 1911 the town received a grant of $10,000 from Andrew Carnegie - making it one of the seventeen Carnegie Libraries in the state of Maine. With support from the town and by R.J. Noyes of Augusta, Maine, the Fort Fairfield Public Library was completed and officially opened on September 9, 1913.

In 1925 Colonel Franklin Drew, from Lewiston, who regarded Fort Fairfield's public library as one of the best in the State, donated his personal library to it. The Drew Room, where the genealogy records, town reports dating back to the late 1800s, the Fort Fairfield Review, and the Fort Fairfield Journal are kept, are named after his father, Jessie Drew.

In 1989 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places and in 1994 to 1995 a beautiful addition was added as a community room to be used for the benefit of the inhabitants in Fort Fairfield, local clubs and organizations. It also features the children's room, the librarian's office and bathroom, which are all handicap accessible. The community room was used as a temporary town office during the 1994 flood.

In 2007, with the urging of the trustees who decided to join the technology world, a decision was made to computerize the library's collection. 14,000 books were entered into computers for the librarian's and library patrons' use.
