Rundel River to Roof Tours   

Tours visit the Lower Stacks, where a trap door to the old millrace will be opened for viewing and learning how the river is a natural air conditioner for the building. The tours also visit the Upper Stacks, where participants may hear about various ghostly experiences staff have had in the building. Tours stop in the Local History & Genealogy Division and learn about some special items in the library’s collection. A stop on the roof reveals a spectacular view of the Genesee River and the city. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to stand and/or walk for 90 minutes. 


Private tours can be arranged for your group of up to 25 people. For cost and availability, contact Rebecca Fuss, Director of Programming & Outreach, at 585-428-8350 or Rebecca.Fuss@libraryweb.org
