History:

Wyalusing's public library was a gift to the community in 1902 from Francis R. Welles. Welles fervently believed in the value of education in improving the world. He felt that by making books accessible to people, he was lending a helping hand in their education. Welles stocked the Wyalusing Public Library with books from his personal collection to that end.

Albert Tipp, a Wilkes-Barre architect, designed the library. He made it as fireproof as current day building techniques would allow. The facade is brick and there is a cement liner between the roof and interior rooms. When an addition was built in 1991, the original tiled fireplaces and oak woodwork was kept intact.

Gifts and Memorials:

A donation may be made to the library in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone. A bookplate with the person's name and the name of the donor is placed in a a medium of ones choice and notification is sent to those designated. A gift of this type may be made in person or through the mail.

In our Sponsor An Author program, a patron agrees to reimburse the library for new titles written by their favorite author and then gets to be the first to read them. A bookplate is inserted to announce the gift.
