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 country.
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.
Through the affiliation with the North Country Library System, virtually any book in print can loaned from our library.
I urge you to join me on Tuesday, May 15th, and vote yes on the library proposition of $80,000.
This will restore full services to our library.
Yes, this will cost me an extra $10 per year, a very modest price to maintain our community library.
