Arts & Libraries 

Arts and Library facilities have a positive economic, social, and quality of life impact on a community. Fulton County is committed to ensuring that residents have access to a variety of quality, cultural, and educational activities. The County currently provides programs and events throughout county libraries and facilities. As a result, these programs and events indirectly stimulate arts and culture ecosystem by funding non-profit organizations across the County.

Performance Dashboards and Initiatives

Strategic Performance Dashboard
Strategic performance measures track activities which often extend beyond the power of one department or even the county government to affect on its own, but we believe improvements can be made in these areas through cooperation between departments and through partnerships with other government agencies, non-profits and the private sector.

Department Performance Dashboard 
Department performance measures are specific to county departments and are designed to track performance for the programs and services provided by each department. Departments set annual performance goals and report quarterly on their progress toward those goals. View dashboard
Fulton County Strategic Initiatives

This section provides information on County's current year initiatives under the Arts and Libraries priority area as well as accomplishments related to initiatives from last year. View initiatives
