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 to any library card holder.

History of the Project

Since its beginning in 2012, the memoir project has published 6 complete books, and as of 2021, the total number of participants tops 200, ranging in age from 15 to 102! For a complete and thorough history of this project and how we got where we are today, please download the document below.

Contribute to our next book!

We’re so excited to start collecting 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.
