Tully Free Library

12 State Street
Tully, NY 13159


There was the dream of a library in Tully as early as 1903 when Mrs.McGahon organized a book exchange club. And, as long ago as 1913 an Old Home Day speaker made the statement that Tully was in need of a "Carnegie". It was inevitable that our community would one day have a public library, but it was no one Carnegie, but many public-spirited citizens who brought it into reality. After carefully planned organizational meetings and a concentrated drive to procure funds, and 300 books, the Tully Free Library opened its doors on May 15, 1935. 100 books were borrowed from the Syracuse Public Library for one year, at a cost of $100. The books were to be exchanged as often as demand warranted. Tully Library was referred to as a "station" of the Syracuse Library.
