Board of Trustees


Mission: The mission of the North Hampton Public Library is to meet the evolving educational, cultural, informational and recreational needs of the community of North Hampton by providing library resources and services. The library, as a community gathering place, strives to acquire materials, plan programs, and provide services that reflect an understanding and consideration of the community served. The library will offer a welcoming environment, with concern given for all ages, backgrounds, interests, abilities, and levels of education.

The statute relating to public libraries,  RSA 202-A:1, begins with a declaration of policy:
Mindful that, as the constitution declares, “knowledge and learning, generally diffused through a community” are “essential to the preservation of a free government” the legislature recognizes its duty to encourage the people of New Hampshire to extend their education during and beyond the years of formal education. To this end, it hereby declares that the public library is a valuable supplement to the formal system of free public education and as such deserve adequate financial support from government at all levels.
