About

Fulton Branch is a full-service neighborhood library for Cleveland’s Fulton community. It opened in 1983. Fulton offers free wifi and public computers with Internet access. Printing, copying, scanning, and faxing services are available for a fee. This branch is located at the intersection of Fulton Road and Bush Avenue, with a free parking lot available off Bush.

History & Architecture

Fulton Branch opened in 1983. Teare and Herman, the architects who designed this 8,300-square-foot structure, explained their intent “to recognize the trapezoidal site’s relationship to a busy intersection and scaled in context with the surrounding houses and small retail buildings.” The branch’s interior is highlighted by open stacks and a reading gallery lit by a north-facing clerestory.

Special Features

  • Fulton offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.
  • During the school year, Fulton offers America Reads tutors as well as the Kids Café, a partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to provide free bagged lunches for children.
  • This branch features Readers Column, a sculpture by the artist David E. Davis.
