Welcome to Fenton Free Library
Fenton Free Library is conveniently located in Binghamton, NY. Since the 1930’s we have been delighting readers of all ages with books directly from our shelves, as well as through the Four County Library System. Thanks to these two resources you will be able to find almost any book you can think of. Looking for fresh reading ideas? Or unsure of where to start? We are here to help with suggestions.
We love to promote the joy of reading, but that’s not all. We are also pleased to offer a place for our local area to congregate and learn. Our Children’s Room and Toddler Story Time provide a safe place for children to play and learn. We also offer programs for seniors, older children and teens.
Programs and Events
Our programs are available for everyone in the community and we offer options for all age groups. No matter if you are toddler joining us for Story Time, a teen joining us for our social group called Booked, or a senior interested in our Wellness Program, we are here for you.
We offer various events throughout the year and this page will show you current and upcoming events. Some of our most popular happenings include our annual Easter Egg Hunt and our much loved 5K Run/Walk.
Annual event held in early June as a fundraiser for our Summer Reading and Children’s Programming.
Once Upon a Story Time
We’re so pleased to offer our Story Time on Wednesdays to promote reading aloud to our littlest patrons. It’s a fun, interactive morning with a story, related craft, and snack.
Fenton Free Library serves to enrich the quality of life for a diverse population of all ages by providing resources and services which contribute to individual literacy, education and entertainment. The Library also serves as a focal point for community activities for people of all ages. Community needs drive our services and we take personal interest in ensuring they are delivered in a welcoming, convenient and responsive manner.
Our vision is to be the heart of the community – a place where people come to find comfort and support through the library’s resources.
