your community resource.

We offer a wide selection of fiction, mystery and non-fiction books, audiobooks on cd, as well as a large collection of dvds for adults and children. Three public computers and wifi offer access to the internet. Our special collections include a Cape Cod section, materials about and for our local Finnish community and the historical Wirtanen collection - clippings, photos, and notes related to our unique West Barnstable village.  As a member of the CLAMS network we can offer access to materials from all over the Cape, interlibrary loan, and a large collection of ebooks and downloadable audiobooks.

We now have custom book bags! These sturdy but lightweight nylon bags fold up into their own little pouch for easy storage and easily shake out when needed. The bags are $5 each and available at the circulation desk.  Grab a couple for shopping, or to give as gifts.
