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 library programs throughout the year and provide a presence in the library and greater Goffstown community.
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.
