Mission Statement

Hyannis Public Library’s mission is to welcome diversity, inspire creativity, stimulate intellectual curiosity and facilitate lifelong learning by providing high-quality resources, programming, and services to all.


Located in the heart of Cape Cod, Hyannis Public Library was established in 1865 and is the oldest library on the Cape.  Today, it remains a dynamic community asset.

Our library will continue to foster an inclusive, inviting atmosphere that meets the needs of all patrons.  We will be recognized for making modern resources accessible, providing innovative services and programs, and creating a comfortable physical environment that honors our historical setting while supporting contemporary needs and interests.  Hyannis Public Library will continue to enhance its place in the community as a modern cultural and intellectual social center.
