The Wilson Free Library has a long and storied history. Early in the 1900’s, libraries were only found in large cities. At that time, the Western Federation of Women’s Clubs started a campaign to bring public libraries to rural communities. In 1909, our local women’s group, The Delphic Circle, returned from a federation meeting in Salamanca, excited at the prospect of starting a library in Wilson.
The Library has been busy even amidst the pandemic! We were fortunate to be awarded another NYS Grant that is allowing us to improve and update our first floor in addition to a previous grant that supported the second floor renovations. We are expanding our children's area into two rooms and will have new book booths, a storytime platform and playhouses hopefully in the next few months! We were also able to update our flooring and get shiny new coats of paint all over the Library. Our 2nd floor construction is coming to a close and we are working on furnishing the three new study/remote work rooms, the makerspace, and the brand new community room. While we are not currently running any programs inside the Library, we are completely open regular hours for browsing our materials, printing, and computer use. We have also been offering several different Take and Make crafts for children to enjoy at home. Our wonderful Friends of the Wilson Community Library are currently offering a seed library with lots of vegetables and flowers for you to come and take for your gardens.
