About us

The Beverly Free Library was started in 1895 by the Paragraph Club, a local women’s club. In 1923, after living in a number of temporary locations, it was determined that the library needed a building of its own. After much hard work and fundraising the Library and War Memorial was dedicated at 441 Cooper Street in 1929, where the library remains today. This beautiful library, the World War One Memorial and the award-winning library gardens sit at the edge of Beverly City’s downtown, within a couple blocks of the Beverly-Edgewater Park station on the RiverLine.
