Fulton Public Library wins "Best Library" award

Love your Library.jpg

The Fulton Public Library was selected as "Best Library" (Oswego County) in New York State Senator Patty Ritchie's "Love Your Library" poll.  Sue Hutchins, of Fulton Public Library, was also named as the "Outstanding Librarian."  The poll was concluded as part of National Library Week (April 12-18) and was conducted to demonstrate Senator Ritchie's support of libraries as centers of their communities.  In the last three years alone, library use in New York has grown 10%.  Senator Ritchie has secured $250,000 in special grants to help libraries in Jefferson, Oswego, and St. Lawrence Counties.  Thank you to all our great patrons for voting!

 

Fulton Public Library Supports Local Authors

 The Fulton Public Library recently hosted author Diane Sokolowski for a discussion of her book So I Wanted to Run a Bed and Breakfast (Was I Crazy?).   Diane shared experiences in her role as the inn keeper of Battle Island Inn Bed and Breakfast.   Diane is just one of a growing number of local authors utilizing new avenues of publishing (including independent publishers and self-publishing) to tell their stories.

The Fulton Public Library supports our local authors by offering copies of their books for sale or traditional lending.   We have sponsored the publication of two books as part of the ongoing “Fulton Memoirs Project.”  The project compiles individual recollections and oral histories of the people, places, schools, and businesses that make Fulton a special community.

Check out our local authors display adjacent to the front desk at the library and support local authors!

If you know of someone who has published a book or is interested in doing so contact the library.
