The Fulton County Library in McConnellsburg, PA has operated from its current location since 1989. The building was the former American Legion and before being renovated for that purpose, was a barn. The library was automated in 1997 and a new childrenâ€™s room was added that year with help from the Alexander Stewart Foundation. In 2008, the library received a $500,000 Keystone matching grant to be used for rehabilitation and renovations to the library. The renovations included installation of an elevator and automatic doors, renovation of the upper floor for library use, faÃ§ade work and interior remodeling to make the library more functional, accessible, and attractive. Because of the rural nature of the community and the lack of a dedicated library tax, the Fulton County Library continues to rely on funding from grants and donations. The library is grateful to local businesses and individuals whose support is critical to upgrading and maintaining library services for more than 9,000 card holders.
