Support Your Library

Since 1909 the Goffstown Public Library has been a community resource, a comfortable place for citizens to access quality materials and programs, and explore issues of local, national and global interest.

Please consider supporting the Goffstown Public Library today.

The Library needs your support to help build and preserve its resources for you, our patrons.

We are proud to offer the newest materials, as well as valued older books, computerized services, and free programs at the Goffstown Public Library. Private support supplements local funding and helps increase the number and variety of services available. There are many ways to support the Goffstown Public Library.

The Library welcomes your donated books, audio books, movies, music, and magazines in good condition. Due to space constraints and limited processing resources, the Library is unable to accept all materials offered to us – We cannot accept: encyclopedias, text books, reader’s digest books, or books that moldy or in disrepair. Most donated items are sold in book sales that support the Library. In rare cases, our staff may add donated items to the collection. The Library reserves the right to dispose of unsolicited materials in any manner it deems appropriate. Donations are accepted during business hours.
