Help us keep the Comfort Cabinet stocked!

The Comfort Cabinet is running low and we are looking for donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, gently used shoes, and feminine hygiene products.

The Comfort Cabinet, located in the foyer of the library, is available for anyone and everyone with items that are free to take as needed. Please contact us if you can donate items!

Contribute a memory to our next book!

Weโ€™re so excited to start collecting memories for our next memoir book project! The topic weโ€™ve chosen for our seventh book is neighborhoods or houses in which you grew up. This doesnโ€™t necessarily mean just the City of Fulton and can include the surrounding areas. If you are interested in contributing to this project or want to learn more about it, please contact the library and weโ€™ll put you in touch with one of our Memoir Committee members.

Borrow a YMCA Membership from the library!

We’re teaming up with the Fulton Family YMCA to bring you the opportunity to experience the wonderful things our local YMCA has to offer! The library has added a Family Membership to our collection that you can now check out with your library card for 7 days. You’ll have access to Group Exercise Classes, Sauna, Steam Room, Fitness Center, Open Swim, Gymnasium, Kids Club, and other free classes for youth.

To get started:

  • Visit the library and check out the membership on your library card. *Please call ahead to see if it’s available; we do not allow holds or renewals on this item.*
  • Go to the YMCA, scan in at the welcome desk, and sign a waiver.
  • Pick your class or activity.
  • HAVE FUN!

Love the Cornell shirt,

What fun

This week is National Library Week, and the Friends of the Fulton Public Library brought a special surprise for all of our staff. A delicious lunch from Red Baron Pizza, a heartfelt handwritten card, and a beautiful floral vase for each staff member. We want to thank them for their recognition and generosity. We are extremely lucky to have such great Friends! If you would like to learn about joining the Friends of the Fulton Public Library, please visit https://fofpl.org/.Image attachment

It was our absolute pleasure! We are your biggest fans โค๏ธ

This is wonderful. A well deserved recognition

Very Nice!

If you still have your solar eclipse viewing glasses, consider bringing them to the library to be collected and donated to Astronomers Without Borders! This organization will help by sending your gently used eclipse glasses to other countries for the next solar event later this year.
Its Flannel Day at Fulton Public Library! But more importantly, its National Library Workers Day! Lets all give a shout out to the wonderful and dedicated staff at FPL who do so much for this library and community. As former NYPL President Timothy Healy once said, The most important asset of any library goes home at night- the library staff.

It was the Fulton Public Library that worked with me thru the early 2000-2022 acquiring microfilm of newspapers from the New York State Library that is now freely searchable on www.fultonhistory.com. 57,000,000 newspaper pages and around 1,350 titles from across the US and Canada and still adding content.

Love every one of you ! Thank you so much for always taking such good care of all my requests! Yes indeed, YOU ARE THE BEST,โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ. Mary even reads my mind. She is amazing! Fulton folks are very very blessed to have such courteous, helpful, kind and efficient staff. I appreciate you. I like your flannel shirts too๐Ÿฅณ

Wonderful people, thank to all

Best library and library staff in the world!!

Good thing you explained it was flannel day. I thought maybe the city didn't pay your heating bill. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi Sue, good to see you. Can’t believe you let them take your picture. It is better than the one hanging in the Post Office

Reading is fundamental. You will get more out of reading, than you will from technology.

Hi Sue, thanks to all!

Thank you!!! ๐Ÿ“š

Sue did you have to borrow one ๐Ÿ˜‚

Is Pearl Jam playing in the background?

The best library staff in the county!

Hi Carololine!!!!

Did you use the new cricut for those bags? I love the bottom right one!

The tote bags look great!

I wasn't able to make it over yesterday but would love a tote. Are they available at the library or another event in the future?
