Backpacks for Liberty House

Our work here at the library brings us together with a wide variety of people and organizations throughout the greater Goffstown community.

In April, we met Keith Howard, Executive Director of Liberty House, who was a “book” in the 2015 Human Library. In July, we learned about the strides Liberty House is making towards assisting and advocating for homeless veterans. Homeless veterans face unique challenges and it’s our turn to extend a helping hand. Liberty House has put together a wish list of items that they could use. The library will be collecting items on the wish list through September 30; please consider donating.

“For more than a decade, Liberty House in Manchester, NH has been providing a safe, supportive, substance-free housing community for American veterans transitioning out of homelessness.”
