About the Building Project



Taking the 19th century building into the 21st century while preserving its historic character.

Finishing the Building Project –

Letter from the Director and Board:

We are pleased and excited to announce that since launching the “West Falmouth Library: Taking the Historic Library into the Future” capital campaign in the fall of 2013, we have raised $2.6 million toward the $2.9 million goal. The Board of Directors and Capital Campaign Committee are so grateful for the generous support from individual households, family and private foundations, the Falmouth Community Preservation Committee, and the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund. These gifts reflect the value placed on the Library in the Community.


We still need to raise about $238,000! In the newly restored, renovated, and expanded West Falmouth Library building, the Library is now providing improved accessibility, properly preserving archival materials pertaining to the history of the village of West Falmouth, supporting lifelong learning for all ages, enhancing literacy, fostering creativity, and providing comprehensive library services to a growing and diverse population. We have more room for meetings, more seating for programs, and have had summer concerts on our new deck and terrace.

We’re almost finished with our Capital Campaign! We extend our deepest thanks to each of you for your support and hope that some of you can still help us to reach our goal.
