The Callaway County Public Library in Fulton is re-opening its second floor on Saturday with brand new carpeting in place. The public computers on the second floor will once again be accessible and the books and other collections housed on the second floor are being reshelved through the weekend.
The second floor of the Callaway County Public Library is getting new carpeting on the second floor this month, which means the upper level of the library is closed March 9-March 27. A collection of new and popular books as well as magazines have been moved into the Friends Room on the first floor so you can still check out some items. The project will not affect the children’s area.
