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.
