HISTORY

The Ocee library opened its doors Saturday, October 9th, 2004, and quickly became one of the most used branches in the system.

Over half our opening day collection was devoted to children's and young adult materials - our younger patrons were particularly delighted to see the library finally open its doors!

Our library is named "Dr. Robert E. Fulton Regional Library at Ocee" in honor of the late District 3 Commissioner and member of the Library Board of Trustees. Commissioner Fulton was instrumental in having this library built, and unfortunately did not see his dream realized before his untimely demise. We honor his memory not only through the name of our library, but also with a portrait of Dr. Fulton (located to the immediate left as you come in the library from the entrance hall), and a collection of books dedicated to his interests (the collection is housed in a bookshelf located to the right of the reference desk, along the outer wall). Dr. Fulton was a professor at Georgia Tech and a retired NASA engineer, as well as being a library advocate and county commissioner. His family still actively supports the Dr. Robert E. Fulton Library, and is proud to have his name remembered in such an appropriate way.
