The Octavia Fellin Public Library’s mission is to enable the people of our diverse community to obtain information, resources and education through a full range of services and programs.
The library is now a city department and the library director is a member of the city’s management team. City of Gallup funds the library and all county residents, the Navajo Nation and the Zuni Pueblo receive services for free. Contiguous county residents and those living in Arizona pay a nominal fee. The Octavia Fellin Library is the only public library for McKinley County and the Southeast District of the Navajo Nation. Not believing a library should ever be limited by the economic condition of its region, the library seeks out partnerships and grant opportunities, always striving to meet and exceed the needs of patrons. The library is the crossroads of the community, bringing together people, information, and ideas.
