“A public library, privately financed”
The Yarmouth Port Library is a privately funded, public library and operates exactly like the other two Yarmouth libraries (South and West). ALL are welcome!
Library services are funded by your membership contributions and donations.
Please consider getting involved by becoming a member of the Yarmouth Port Library Association, volunteering your time, or making a financial contribution.

Annual Membership Campaign
Once Again, It’s Membership Time!
The Yarmouth Port Library is once again asking for your support for its annual Membership Campaign. Renewal letters for 2023 will be going out on or around December 1st. All donations help fund our Operating Budget, and function to fill the gap between our costs and other sources of revenue. Typically, $40,000 has been our annual goal, one which has nearly always been achieved, and which remains unchanged this year.
We hope that you will consider what the library means to you, your family, and to the community, and support us as generously as in the past. When you receive our appeal in the mail, please use the included donation envelope.
We are grateful for your past support. Thank you.

As a privately funded public library, the Yarmouth Port Library does not receive funding from the Town of Yarmouth. The Yarmouth Port Library Association raises funds through private donations, grants, bequests, and other gifts. Your donations provide the operating funds we need to stay open today and in the future.
