Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness we return to books: to find words for what we already know.

One of the nicest things about the library is that everyone is welcome.  We check out thousands of books, movies, and music each year to more than 32,000 people.  Every year, we host a variety of programs that are open to all.

Although we receive some funding from the town, the library relies on private donations and member support.  It’s easy to become a member—and fun, too.  As a member, you’re invited to special events, our annual meeting, and previews for book sales.  We are also planning game nights and other new programs for members.

The North Scituate Public Library Association was originally formed in 1906 by a group of citizens interested in providing a community library. Over the years the Association has guided the growth of the Library through the active participation of its members. The citizens of Scituate are proud of their long tradition of community support for the library.

Interested in Volunteering?

The Friends of the Library volunteer their time, helping us keep the library a special place.  One of the library’s greatest strengths is the support and involvement of the community. Volunteering is a great way to get to know your neighbors too. To volunteer, fill out this form.
