Fay Golden Taylor was the Director of the Liverpool Public Library for 23 years. Under her leadership the library opened a new building in 1975 and built an addition in 1986. Fay was also very involved in community affairs on both local and state wide levels. She led Liverpool Public Library through a period of rapid growth and expansion with grace and style.

Hired in 1971, Fay began her career at Liverpool as the Children's librarian. At that time the library was located in the old school building that had been built in the late 1800s. The library was relocated twice in the early 70s while a new building was being constructed and Fay became the Director just before the new building opened in 1975.

During her tenure at Liverpool Public Library, Fay was instrumental in the development of Summer Bus, the Art Gallery, Art in the Park, Arts Alive concerts and many other programs that attracted new library patrons. During the early 80s, two landmark programs brought Liverpool Public Library to national attention. The arrival of public access computers and a circulating software collection made Liverpool Public Library one of the first public libraries in the country to provide its patrons with both computers and instruction on their use.
