At Your Service
In her 1976 History of the Eastham Public Library, Helen B. Schwind wrote that the library was "Created by townspeople out of a desire to enrich their lives, and to aid in educating their children." The "creation" took place at a town meeting on February 11, 1878, when $175 was appropriated for a library. more
New Library Update
Eastham has been awarded a grant from the Massachusetts board of Library Commissioners. At this time there is only sufficient money to fund eight projects . We are now fourth on the wait list to receive funds when they become available.
The successful grant application and town meeting vote are both significant milestones toward Eastham's expanded library with improved access, meeting room and environmentally sound operating systems.
The Town recently hired Oudens Ello Architects and P3 Project Managers. The Library Trustees and town’s Capital Projects committee are engaged in refining our plans so we will be ready to begin work when the funds become available. Photos and current information about the building project can be found on the Director’s Blog.
