WELCOME

TheDirectorsBlog_2000x1000

Thank you for taking the time to visit the new Director's blog. I hope you will find this page useful as I share information about new things happening at Fulton County Library System.  I hope to share information with you about new books and materials, digital resources and programming at the library.

I will enjoy sharing books I am currently reading and will appreciate hearing from you and even learning about books you might recommend for me!
