Kathy Mahoney, Director, Mashpee Public Library

Since opening the new library building in 2010, the Mashpee Public Library has become a destination for residents throughout the region. We have experienced a huge increase in usage in all areas: circulation, library cards, computer use, and program attendance. The new building has provided us with the opportunity to really begin the process of meeting the needs of the families and residents in our community and the surrounding communities as well. Early in the process, not everyone was convinced that the building project would be successful, but the results have been spectacular!
