About Us:

The Raynham Public Library dates back to 1888. On April 7th of that year, 93 citizens signed the library’s first report recognizing that a town with a library can offer more to its citizens. The 93 supporters stated that their well-equipped library would be “…free, under proper conditions, to every person regardless of sex, creed, or color.” The Raynham Library Association was thus established.

The library was housed in various locations around the town until 1949 when the present library building was dedicated. In 1961, the library transformed the lower floor into a Children’s Room. In 1971, the library facility was expanded and again, in 1991, the latest addition to the library was completed.

The library is governed by a board of twelve Trustees headed by a president. The Trustees are elected from the membership of the Raynham Library Association. Any resident of Raynham interested in helping the library is eligible for membership in the Raynham Library Association. Application for membership.

The library became a member of the SAILS network in August, 2001. The SAILS network connects 60 libraries in the Eastern Sub region of Massachusetts and provides an extensive resource sharing program among the libraries.
