  • Want a tour of Centerville? Download the App!

    In anticipation of our 150th anniversary, we’ve created a walking tour that not only gives a little history of the library, but a look back at what makes Centerville unique. Thanks to our partnership with Mass Center for the Book, an organization dedicated to serving libraries, we’ve created a 45 minute tour that begins and ends with the library and includes information on the buildings and places around Centerville. Narrated by a CPL Board member, with research by Britt Beedenbender, the walk takes you on a leisurely stroll, describing stops along the way. Download the app MassBookTrails, choose local tours—Centerville, head to the library and enjoy your tour. MassBookTrails can be found in the app store and through iTunes. It’s also available on the web at massbooktrails.oncell.com

Connie Casey has had a lifelong interest and passion for painting. She is a retired
3rd grade teacher and a beloved Centerville Library volunteer. She and her husband Jack moved to Centerville in 1986, "where there are so many beautiful spots to paint."
Connie has been painting with the Wednesday Painters for decades.

Her work will be on display and for sale throughout the main reading room
through August. A portion of the proceeds will help support the library.


Passes for CLAMS patrons

Two 2-for-1 passes are available at the library the day before the opening performance of Main Stage and Black Box Theatre productions.
Passes are first come,first served.
In fairness to others, we reserve the right to limit passes to 3 passes per patron per season.

After receiving the pass, you must contact CCA to reserve seats for a performance.
This program was begun thanks to a memorial gift from the family of Pat Andres, lover of theatre and the arts.
