Long Description:
According to the library's website:

The Perry Public Library was completed and opened in 1914 through a grant from the Andrew Carnegie Corporation. It was originally chartered to serve the residents of the Town of Perry.

On October 4, 2002, the Board of Regents of the State of New York granted the library a new charter designating the Perry Central School District as the library's chartered service area. Perry Public Library is a member of the Pioneer Library System.

The library also is home to the Stowell-Wiles Art Gallery. Regarding this, the website states:

The Stowell-Wiles Art Gallery was dedicated in 1935 as an addition to the 1914 Carnegie library. The gallery and its original 18 paintings were the gift of Dr. Charles H. Stowell, nephew of artist Lemuel M. Wiles (1826-1905), a Perry native whose Hudson River school oil paintings depict both local scenes and views of Europe and the Western United States. The collection has grown to 43 paintings, most of which have been restored through an ongoing program funded by grants and individual donations.
