Visit us on Halloween for treats, and kids can participate in our annual Halloween contest. We'll take photos of the kids and the community will vote on best costume over the next week. Stop by the library until 7:30 PM to join in the fun, and then go see the Tully Council for the Arts perform Thriller on the elementary school lawn.
Our 9-member Tully Library Board of Trustees needs a couple new members. If you are interested in joining a friendly, committed group of people who support our director and help the library run smoothly, give Betsy Shahan a call at 315-415-6633 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Board officers change yearly; members serve 3-year terms. We meet 10 times a year (monthly except for June and December). Non-member board "friends" always welcome too. The next Board meetings are on Tuesday September 13 at 5 PM, and Thursday October 20 at 5 PM.

Thank you to an anonymous donor who generously gave these tickets to the library!
We are excited to announce the Tully Free Library's CNYFi program starts at the end of August, 2016.
You will be able to borrow Chromebook laptops and accompanying Verizon Internet hotspots that will allow you to connect to the Internet for free from anywhere. The hotspots allow 10 devices (phones, computers, tablets) to connect to the Internet, so that multiple users will have free Internet access at the same time.
The CNYFi kits can be borrowed by Onondaga County library card holders age 18 or older for a loan period of 3 weeks. Borrowers must first complete a workshop about how the kit works with library staff. Workshop sessions will be listed on our events calendar. You must register beforehand for a session on the calendar or by calling the library. If no session time works for you, please call us at 315-696-8606.
The library is one of several libraries across the Central New York region participating in CNYFi, thanks to a grant received by the Central New York Library Resources Council (CLRC).
For more information on CNYFi, call the library at 315-696-8606.
