While Fulton County Library branches remained closed, the staff is making it easier to access programming and resources online.
Programming and Resources
Storytime has gone digital at Fulton County Library. Join staff for Storytime-Live!, Monday- Friday at 11 a.m. on Facebook and listen to special stories while little ones are home from school, daycare or just in need of some mid-morning fun.
Big Library Read is kicking off one week early. It’s the first global ebook club and offers an opportunity to engage with readers from around the world. Readers ages 16 and up are encouraged to download Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic via OverDrive or the Libby app and read or listen to the title. Readers can then login to Beanstack at to complete related activities, including writing a review of the book.
All library card holders have access to OverDrive, one of the system’s most popular resources, as well as the Libby app for downloading of ebooks and audiobooks.
All library cards due to expire during the closure have been automatically extended. Patrons should be able to proceed as usual with their online checkouts, downloads and other activities.
Any cards that were suspended or blocked due to overdue fines, have been restored until the library reopens. Fines can be paid in person once the libraries reopen.
Residents who do not currently have a library card can apply for one online and have a temporary library card issued on the library website at www.fulcolibrary.org under the “services” header.
A Few Other Things Library Patrons Should Know
No library books should be returned at this time. All books due to be returned should remain with library patrons. Checkouts have been extended and no fines will be issued during this time.
All items currently on hold, will remain on hold until the library reopens. Holds will not expire during the closure period.
While all cards, due dates and holds have been extended, patrons may continue to receive automated messages from the system. They are asked to disregard any “due date notices” until libraries reopen to the public.
Library staff is online and ready to answer questions, troubleshoot issues with library cards, answer questions about digital services Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. through the Ask A Librarian service at: https://afpls.libanswers.com/.
