Library History

Serving Pullman For More Than 100 Years!
Greystone Church
Neill Public Library began as a children's library on June 20, 1922 in the basement of the Presbyterian Church, which is now Greystone Church Apartments. The library's collection had about 700 books, some new, some used, and some on loan from the school district for use during the summer.

A remarkable group of Pullman women founded the library, and you can learn about them in local historian and WSU Professor Donna Pott's article, Lost Women of the Library

Learn even more about your library's history by reading local historian John R. Anderson's article, The Little Library that Could: The Origins and Development of Neill Public Library in Pullman.
