Lillian Dixie Morton Children’s Library

Where can you go and carry home- as often as you want- an armload of knowledge, imagination and adventure? Where can you feel at home amidst a world of books, media and technology? The Osterville Village Library is just that special place.

The Osterville Village Library staff understands that by opening books, children open new avenues for self-exploration and imagination/creativity-building. Please join us as we help the young people of Osterville and beyond to explore, discover, and learn.
