NHCPL Library: Home

All public library buildings are closed as of 3/18.  The library is offering curbside pickup of arrived holds 10am-2pm on Tuesday March 31 and Wednesday April 1.

Based on the Governor’s Stay At Home Order and the desire to keep library patrons and staff safe, the library’s curbside pick-up will be suspended after 2 pm on Wednesday, April 1 for the duration of the county’s restriction (which lasts until April 13, unless reevaluated or extended).

If you have received notification that your reserve items have arrived, they will remain available at the designated location until 2 p.m. on April 1. It is no longer possible to place reserves on library materials. No overdue fines will be charged while libraries are closed, and all library accounts will remain in good standing during this time.

This is an extremely difficult decision to make, because the services the library provides are important for our community and we understand the critical role the library plays in providing enrichment and education, especially in difficult times. But this is being done in the best interest of our staff and our community.

Our virtual offerings, eBooks, eAudiobooks, and more social distancing activities are available 24/7.
