West Yarmouth Library
Welcome to the West Yarmouth Library
The West Yarmouth Library Association was incorporated February 4, 1891, to establish and maintain a library. Dues were fifty cents a year and the Library was to be opened every Saturday afternoon.
The West Yarmouth Library Association (WYLA) is now a group of “Friends of the Library” whose mission is to raise funds to provide materials and programs not covered in the library’s operating budget. WYLA conducts an annual fund drive, encourages gifts and other support for the library and administers funds already left in trust. With WYLA’s support, The West Yarmouth Library is able to provide craft programs, summer reading programs, Yarmouth Reads, invest in technology and acquire online resources. In addition, the Association funds museum passes, library furniture, Volunteer Appreciation Day, and co-sponsors the Who-ville Express with South Yarmouth Library Association. Regular fundraising projects include the Book Sale Shelf at the West Yarmouth Library and the outdoor summer book, hotdog lunch and craft sale in conjunction with the Cape Cod Village Crafters.
All residents and visitors to Yarmouth are invited to join the Association and help the West Yarmouth Library continue to enrich the community. Please ask about the annual appeal to get on our mailing list.
The Association is governed by a Board of Trustees which functions as the Officers of the Association. The Board usually meets monthly to conduct the business of the Association.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us through the West Yarmouth Library at 508-775-5206.
