All Branches are closed until further notice. We are looking forward to when we can safely reopen to the public.
Everyone, please stay safe out there!

In an effort to be preventative, the Fulton County Public Library will be closed starting Monday, March 16th and will tentatively reopen Monday, April 6th. (We are open Saturday, March 14th.)

We are following our Emergency Closings Policy: the local schools are closing, so we are following suit. We have decided to be proactive rather than reactive in order to lessen the risk. We want to help flatten the curve so fewer people catch the virus: (https://healthblog.uofmhealth.org/wellness-prevention/flattening-curve-for-covid-19-what-does-it-mean-and-how-can-you-help?fbclid=IwAR0shOAVbDhP9xXwQDOCtA9_QWJzJpMx3aD3hWBZBLwUrp8P8Dop6XwGldI).

Borrowed materials will not be due until after we reopen. We will keep the public updated via our Facebook page (facebook.com/FCPubLib/) and our website (www.fulco.lib.in.us).

All of our digital resources (www.fulco.lib.in.us/digital-resources/) will remain available during our closure.

We know this closure may be inconvenient, but we believe it is in the best interest of the community. We want to help keep everyone healthy and safe.
