  • We are so excited to offer virtual programs via ZOOM!

    You can access these programs on your home computer, tablet or phone. Due to the nature of Zoom meetings, you will need to register in advance for each program. There will be a link here for you to do that, and then we will send you a link to the program just prior to the event.
    The presenters are eager to share their knowledge with you. We hope you can join us!
  • We would appreciate your help!

    Like many other small businesses, the library has been negatively affected by the pandemic and we have experienced a substantial loss of income. We've had to cancel critical fundraising events and close our Book Store. The Centerville Library is an independent nonprofit organization and we only receive 60% of our revenue from the Town of Barnstable each year. The Library Board of Trustees and the staff are responsible for raising the additional 40%. The loss of revenue from our Annual Auction, Jewelry Sale and Book Store will have a considerable impact on our operating budget. Additionally, we have already learned that our Town funding will be reduced in FY21. The resulting budget shortfall will undoubtedly necessitate some adjustments in how we operate, but every attempt will be made to continue to offer you the best services possible.
    We are grateful to the people of Centerville Village. They love and support their library and they've always been extremely generous when there is a need. Please donate if you can. The Library has been here for over 150 years, and we plan to be here for a long time to come!
     Thanks so much, Victoria Allard - Library Director
