FAIRBURY, Neb -- The Jefferson County Sheriff's office has released details as to why the Fairbury Public Library has been closed to the public.   

On Saturday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department received a call from staff at the Fairbury Public Library in regards to someone potentially using the public computers in the library to potentially access sexually explicit materials, including images of minor children.

Also a thanks to the citizens of Fairbury for your patience and understanding. The safety of our citizens and more importantly our children is our top priority.
