Friends of the Library

Libraries are an integral part of thriving communities and we do our part to help make sure our library is healthy and vibrant in the Goffstown community. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization interested in the Goffstown Public Library. We strive to focus public attention on and stimulate use of the Library. We also support the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights, which expresses the rights of library users to intellectual freedom.

The Friends sponsor or subsidize many programs throughout the year and provide a presence in the Library and greater Goffstown community.

Friends selected for Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag program again August 2018

We have some very exciting news! The Friends of the Library have been chosen AGAIN as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag program. As a reminder, every time anyone purchases either of the Community Bags at the Hannaford located at 605 Mast Road, the Friends receive $1!

This is truly a great opportunity, and an easy way for you to show your support for the Friends of the Goffstown Public Library. The Friends’ fundraising efforts go towards supporting Library programs, including fully funding the Museum Pass Program.

Please spread the word – the more bags purchased in August, the bigger donation. For more information about the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, visit

2016 Friends of the Library

Little Free Library | Take a Book • Return a Book
At Abingdon Park on Mast Road in Pinardville, next to the Rite Aid parking lot.

The Little Free Library project came to fruition through a collaboration between Samantha Nizer, a 17-year old homeschool student; the Goffstown Public Library and the Friends of the Goffstown Public Library. Dedication was held on October 6, 2015.

  • There will be a variety of books at this Little Free Library so anyone stopping by will find something they may want to read.
  • The Little Free Library relies on the honor system, with a “Take a Book, Return a Book” philosophy.
  • Thanks to the Cruess family, of Bedford-based civil engineering firm TFMoran, for use of the park location.
