A Victorian-style Library, built in the mid-19th century, stands proud towards the end of the Mall. This Library permits access only to members and it may not be possible to gain entry inside.
Earlier known as Mussoorie Library, an ancient library situated at the end of the Mall Road at Kulri, Mussoorie. Tilak Library owes its origins (1841) to Mr. Mackinnon, whose portrait still hangs in its reference room. Mackinnon was one of the leading men in Mussoorie owing to his energy and public spirit. The library is now open for general public and subscription can be availed at a very nominal cost.
