Valley Viewpoints: Great equalizer

by Marian M. Stanton

To all the voters who supported their Fulton Public Library by voting “yes” last Tuesday, please accept my biggest thanks.

Thanks to every one of you, we will be open next Tuesday and all the Tuesdays, continuing to offer you excellent library service through our dedicated, hard-working staff.

If you haven’t been in for a while, stop in, look around, borrow a book, take home a DVD to watch tonight, or use a computer.

The world is at your fingertips at the Fulton Public Library.

When I was thinking about how to ask for your vote on this urgent issue, one of the items I came across is a quote from Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, which I didn’t use then but would like to share now:  “When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The library is a great equalizer.”

Your Fulton Public Library stands ready to serve each and every one of you! Stop in soon.
