Library Closed

To protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Canal Fulton Public Library will be closed to the public beginning Monday, March 16th and remain closed until further notice.  While we recognize that the library is an essential service for many, we also acknowledge the unprecedented position we find ourselves in.  Periodic updates will be posted on our website and social media platforms as information becomes available.

In the interest of public safety, the library hopes that these precautions will help prevent the spread of Coronavirus in our community. No fines or fees will accrue while the library is closed.  Please keep borrowed items until the library reopens.
