Library Profile

The original Sully Branch Library opened in 1954. On September 8, 2009, it opened in its spacious new home in the Thomas P. Ryan Jr. Community Center. The 40,000 square foot community center houses the Sully Library, Webster Community Center and Audubon School No. 33. The one-floor layout is handicapped accessible and provides separate adult, young adult, and children's areas and a bright and modern story time room. 

The Sully Branch Library is a member of the Monroe County Library System 


Drop-In Story Time (Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m.) Do you have a child under the age of five? Are you looking for something fun and educational to do to get him or her away from the television or video games for a little while? If so, Drop-In Story Time is for you! A Sully Branch librarian will read age-appropriate stories which will captivate children's attention. Children will love the wonderful tales of mystery and adventure and will get to play and talk with other children of their age, while parents will get the chance to meet and socialize with other parents of small children. It's safe, enjoyable, community fun for all! 

Book Nibbles (Thursdays at 4 p.m.) This is an after-school program for children aged five to twelve years.  Children at the program pick out age-appropriate books to read and enjoy, and are given fun, entertaining and engaging literature-related activities to do. Kids involved in Book Nibbles will love being able to have a quiet space to read or get schoolwork done, and parents will love that their children are in a safe, comfortable community atmosphere. Come down and be a part!  

ESOL Classes are held on Tuesday from 5 to 6:45 p.m.
