The Wyalusing Public Library is located at 115 Church St. In Wyalusing, Pennsylvania. For 120 years, we have served as an information and education hub for our community. We are immensely proud of this continuing legacy.
Our building was offered as a gift to the community in 1902 through the generosity of Francis R. Welles. Welles fervently believed in the value of education in improving the world. He felt that by making information an accessible to communities, the quality of their educational quality would enliven and improve the culture. To this end, Welles stocked the Wyalusing Public Library with materials from his own personal collection.
Albert Tipp, a Wilkes-Barre architect, designed the library building. Tipp constructed the building to be as fireproof as current day techniques would allow. The facade is brick, and a cement liner sits between the roof and interior rooms. When an addition was built in 1991 through the Generosity of the Taylor Family of Wyalusing, the building’s original tiled fireplaces and oak woodwork was kept intact.
The building contains many unique details from the turn-of-the-century period in which it was built. You will spot many of them upon arriving in our lobby. We believe that these historical qualities mesh with the features of the modern library to create a unique and special atmosphere. Further, the library is the only historic building in Wyalusing to remain used for its original intent and purpose.
