About Sturgis Library

Sturgis Library, a historic public library in the village of Barnstable, is dedicated to providing services and resources to meet the needs of a contemporary community while preserving and promoting Cape Cod history.

Our Library is housed in a building constructed in 1644 as a meetinghouse and home for the Rev. John Lothrop, one of the founders of the Town of Barnstable. It is one of the oldest buildings on Cape Cod, and the oldest building housing a public library in the country. It became a public library in 1867, and is named for Captain William Sturgis, a descendant of John Lothrop.
