How We Are Funded



The Osterville Village Library is a private, 501(c)(3) corporation that receives partial funding from the Town of Barnstable.  This partial funding amounts to 35% of our operating budget.  We can’t operate without it, but that still leaves us over $500,000 to raise every year.  We raise some of that with our car raffle, golf tournament and other events, but still depend primarily on our annual appeal to bring in the bulk of that sum.

We would like to thank the following for their support of the library.
