Osceola Library has Extended Summer Hours

June 24, 2017

The Osceola Library’s summer hours commence on Saturday, July 1. The library will be open seven days a week from 3-5 p.m. right through Sunday, September 3.  

In previous years, the library has hosted Mah Jong and chess.  I’m not sure if they are happening this summer, but stay tuned!  UPDATE:  Mah Jong will be held every Tuesday at 12 p.m. throughout the summer.  New players are welcomed!  Direct questions to Cheryl Moak via email at

The library trustees are once again planning to host a book sale over Columbus Day weekend on Saturday October 7.  

Osceola Library is a town treasure.  If you’ve never been, you must stop by.  It is located at the corner of Boulder Way and West Branch Roads, across from Snows Mountain. Residents, property owners and visitors are all welcome to enjoy the library’s fine selection of books ranging from current best sellers, both fiction and nonfiction, to a collection of children’s and young adult books. You can also purchase copies of Grace Bean’s history of Waterville Valley, “The Town at the end of the road,” as well as handy Osceola Library tote bags (below) and used books.

While you’re at the library, visit the quiet reflection area under the Liberty Elm which was planted by Eagle Scout Mike Bancroft in memory of SPC Marc Paul Decoteau.  

The library hearkens back to simpler times and does not have a telephone.  If you’d like to contact the trustees or staff, send an email to
