The Manomet Branch Library, at 12 Strand Avenue, maintains a wide selection of adult and children’s materials, as well as music CDs and DVDs of feature films. You can also reserve and pick up discounted passes to the New England Aquarium and the Boston Museum of Science here.
Programming at the branch includes programs for both children and adults. On Monday mornings we offer Mother Goose on the Loose (a lapsit program for babies under the age of 18 months for which registration is required), plus Manomet Story Time, a chance for parents, caregivers, and children ages 6 and under to enjoy books, songs, rhymes, and movement activities together while developing early literacy skills.

Manomet Book Groups
- Do you love history and great discussion? History enthusiasts are encouraged to join us for an engaging discussion of important topics of the past at our History Book Group. The group meets one Thursday per month at 4:00 p.m. to discuss the month’s selection. Copies of the book are available one month prior at the branch library.
- Do you love reading classics? Have you been looking for a book discussion group to join? The Vintage Reads book group reads and discusses novels from the Twentieth Century and earlier, focusing on novels and authors that have stood the test of time. We meet one Thursday per month at 7:00 pm. Some of the classics we read are popular while others are more unconventional and unfamiliar.
