Melrose Public Library Mission Statement


Melrose Public Library’s staff, building and collections provide a portal for all to explore, imagine and engage. The library is where literacy, local history and community connect!



Melrose Public Library– where people of all ages, experiences, abilities and beliefs can belong.  As a 21st century community institution with roots in the late 19th century, the library is grounded in the present and has its sights set on the future.  Carefully curated resources provide wide access to books, media, and technology.  Skilled and welcoming staff design innovative programming to foster individual growth and enhance community engagement.  The Melrose Public Library offers places to meet, study, read, engage in civic discourse and share all our stories.
