Welcome to the Osterville Village Library, a cornerstone of our community. You might be surprised by the size of our library for such a quaint village. Indeed, the Osterville Village Library stands out not just in size, but in its expansive vision, scope, and spirit. This library is a beacon of knowledge and community engagement, disproving two major myths along the way.
Firstly, despite its impressive size, the library doesn't burden taxpayers. With three-quarters of our funding generated through our own initiatives, fundrasing events and naming opportunites.
Secondly, the notion that libraries are becoming obsolete couldn't be further from the truth at Osterville. Our bustling entryways,overflow parking and the frequent use of our Wi-Fi, printers, scanners, and public computers tell a different story. The Osterville Village Library remains a vital hub of activity, hosting over 1000 programs, meetings, and events annually. With content streamed online, our YouTube page draws thousands of viewers, reinforcing the enduring value of our library to countless individuals.
Our role extends beyond traditional library services. The Osterville Village Library is nearly 150 years old, and our mission has evolved to meet the modern needs of our community. We offer a range of services, from blood drives and tax preparation to providing refuge during power outages and supporting children in need. Our library is a vibrant community center, fostering inclusion through our clooection, art exhibits, concerts, parades, and more, all while offering top-notch resources like bestsellers, periodicals, and expert staff assistance.
In 2024, the Osterville Village Library continues to redefine what it means to be a library, serving as a vital part of the fabric of our community.
PS Print addition will be available mid May, online version now.
