Donna Staley, Chair Board of Trustees

The pandemic poses many challenges, but we’re proud of the fact that our libraries have continued to operate and have been a source of comfort, knowledge and stability for many of you.

You’ve told us how much you appreciate our To-Go Library and we can see how much you’re enjoying the convenience of our downloadable books, audiobooks, free music and more. FCPL has continued to add materials in those areas.

FCPL has been careful to comply with all of the governor’s recommendations in order to operate safely, and continues to look for new ways to be of help to you.

For those of you with children, who are learning the ins and outs of school at home, there are several ways to make your new role as a part-time teacher easier. offers live homework help, practice quizzes and chances to connect with a tutor on a variety of subjects. The Learning Express Elementary School Center offers fourth and fifth graders help with math, reading, writing and language.

Once you’ve finished the school day, we hope you’ll check out the Virtual Children’s Library page, which offers crafts, fun activities, storytimes and more.

FCPL hopes that whether you visit one of its ten branches or its 11th branch online, you’ll find plenty of information and inspiration.
