Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing, and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. We’re very excited to be continuing this program at Tully Free Library and are making plans for it to be extended even farther into the future.

We are joined by local scientists each month to explore how humans have pushed the limits of science. If you are a local scientist or professor of science interested in leading one of our book discussions, please email We’d be excited to work with you!
