We provide access to information throughout Fulton County. In addition to traditional services like lending books, we offer access to the Internet on computers in our libraries as well as free wi-fi at our locations. Additionally, we lend many electronic books and e-resources. Our libraries also have many programs throughout the year; these programs are free and open to the public.
The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System serves the citizens of Fulton County and the City of Atlanta (including the portion of the city in DeKalb County). It is the largest in the state, with 34 libraries and a collection of more than 2.5 million items. It offers innovative programs, services and virtual resources tailored to meet the needs of each branch's community. Children, teens and adults may choose from a variety of classes, visit exhibitions, listen to authors discuss their work, check out videos, DVDs and CDs, attend book club discussions, get homework help, hear music and see live performances. Last year patrons borrowed more than 3 million items, made 3 million visits to the libraries and its website had over 8.1 million hits.
