Mission

The Mission of the Marstons Mills Public Library (MMPL) is to meet the informational, educational, recreational, and cultural needs of the residents, schools, businesses, and organizations in the Town of Barnstable through personal service, information resources and public programs. In its role as a village library, MMPL serves as a popular materials center, a reference resource, a computer facility, a community gathering place, as well as a facility where children are welcomed and nurtured.

History

The Marstons Mills Public Library was founded on August 22, 1891 when 15 village residents met at Liberty Hall and formed the Marstons Mills Library Association. Mrs. Hattie Mecarta was elected librarian, and all association members agreed to pay 25 cents in annual dues.

 

This first library in Marstons Mills consisted of a book case of seven shelves, housed in the local Post Office. In 1893, Mr. Robinson Weeks donated the piece of land adjacent to the Liberty Hall that would become the home of the Marstons Mills Public Library. The Library Association held various benefits to raise money for the building, and in 1894 the Library opened its doors in its present location. The cost of the original building: $425!
