The North Hampton Public Library serves this small seacoast town of approximately 4,528 persons (2007 data). Established in 1892 the library was first housed in the southwest corner of the Town Hall. By 1895 it was determined that a separate building was needed, and a Board of Trustees was appointed to consider a “free public library.” It was not until January of 1908 that the new fieldstone structure was completed. During the 1960′s plans were developed to build a new and larger library. In 1972 the town meeting voted for a new building to be erected on town land adjacent to the current library. Since September 1973, the library has been in the building it now occupies.
