Did you grow up in Fulton? Do you have memories of your neighborhood? If so, the Fulton Library welcomes you to participate in its Memoir Project. Created in 2012, the Memoir Project gathers stories about Fulton’s past, as told by its residents and former residents. A group of volunteers helps shape those stories into memoirs, which are published in book form.  The theme of the stories collected changes with each book. The current theme is “Fulton’s Neighborhood and Family Homes.” The Library offers opportunities for participants to compose their own story through writing classes, or by telling their story to a volunteer who records it. Either way, it’s a great way for you to contribute to the preservation of Fulton’s proud history.

Contribute to our next book!

We’re excited to collect your memories for our next memoir book project! The topic we’ve chosen for our seventh book is neighborhoods or houses in which you grew up. This doesn’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 we’ll put you in touch with one of our Memoir Committee members.

Published Memoir Books

Buying and borrowing the books

Books can be purchased at the library, The River’s End Bookstore in Oswego, and The Village Shops in Fulton. The cost is $15 each and all money made from the sale of these books goes back into funding the publication of the next project.

All books can also be found in the library and may be checked out by any library cardholder.
