The latest news from Centerville Public Library

Want a tour of Centerville? Download the App!

In anticipation of our 150th anniversary, we’ve created a walking tour that not only gives a little history of the library, but a look back at what makes Centerville unique. Thanks to our partnership with Mass Center for the Book, an organization dedicated to serving libraries, we’ve created a 45 minute tour that begins and ends with the library and includes information on the buildings and places around Centerville. Narrated by a CPL Board member, with research by Britt Beedenbender, the walk takes you on a leisurely stroll, describing stops along the way. Download the app MassBookTrails, choose local tours—Centerville, head to the library and enjoy your tour. MassBookTrails can be found in the app store and through iTunes. It’s also available on the web at
