When I was growing up in Fulton, we were known as “The City That The Depression Missed.” Our industries were strong and vibrant until the 21st century.
This is no longer true.
The closing of our major industries has effected the finances of the City of Fulton to the degree that this year’s public library budget had to be reduced by $80,000.
Our library is a “free public library.” It is used by everyone in the area, both city and county. The services provided by our library are too numerous to mention.
It serves our children on evenings and weekends and during their vacation periods. It provides computer service for people searching for employment. It provides enrichment to the community in the form of books. movies and music.
