We are open 7 days a week
Join the Osterville Village Library this summer for a stroll down memory lane in the open air. Surrounding the gazebo on the library green we'll be hosting a variety of outdoor events!
From weekly story-times to our Plein Air art auction on July 11 to our outdoor concert series, movies, art classes and new collaborations, we're hoping everyone will come out and catch up with neighbors and friends while adhering to guidelines.
The theme this summer will be nostalgia, inspired by our renewed focus on community as a result of the Covid pandemic. Come one, come all for passage back to a simpler time, complete with a couple of surprises in store.
Stay tuned for more .
