About

George F. Johnson Memorial Library is located in Endicott, a few miles west of Binghamton in New York's Southern Tier. Open
since 1915, "GFJ" has previously operated under the names "Endicott Free Library" and "Ideal Home Library." It is noted for
pioneering mobile service with one of the first bookmobiles (horse-drawn) in the northeast U.S. in 1916. The library is named
after the local industrialist, philanthropist, and shoe magnate known for his benevolence and many contributions to the
community; and sits on the site of his former home. Library collections of note include newspapers dating to 1856, photographs,
George F. Johnson memorabilia, and Union-Endicott High School yearbooks.
