The mission of the Tully Free Library is to facilitate creation, collaboration, and exploration in our community by providing access to the world of information and ideas.
Tully, NY, is a rural, agricultural community, a town of roughly 6,000 residents in Central NY located 15 miles south of Syracuse and 10 miles north of Cortland. It is geographically isolated from many resources and opportunities available to larger and more affluent communities, yet it is home to distinguished artists, leading scientists, bestselling authors, accomplished professors, and world-class athletes. Tully is a tight-knit community whose embedded knowledge represents a powerful tool for providing countless opportunities for lifelong learning. The Tully Free Library uses innovative strategies to leverage local and global resources by offering community learning programs, facilitating local knowledge networks, and developing engaging services to position the library as a hub for community learning.

The big event in Tully this weekend is the Relay for Life. Held at the Tully High School track from Friday at 6PM to Saturday at 6AM. This event raises money for the American Cancer Society. Check out this site for more: www.relayforlife.org/tullyny.
Thursday and Friday are looking a little damp with an 80% chance of rain, but the weekend looks promising: highs in the 70′s and mostly dry. There are a couple of fun dining options for foodies this weekend: St. Sophia’s Greek Fest and Taste of Syracuse in Clinton Square. After stuffing yourself at these events, burn it off with a wildlife walk, some kayaking, or a LiveWELL fitness class. Or for a more local flavor, check out Tully Women’s Choir’s Spring Concert at the Tully Train Station on Saturday at 7pm. No matter what you do, have fun and be nice to your neighbor! More after the jump. Continue reading →

From the flyer: Visit the Tully Valley mud boils, mud slide, and local glacial features that make our Tully community beautiful and unique! One hour guided bus tour offered at 9am and again at 10am leaving from the library. These tours are open to everyone on a first come, first served. Also, stop into the library and check out our new seed library! You can now use your library card to check out packets of seeds from the library. Continue reading →
