Martin Luther King Jr. Day

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day, we’ve added displays for both adults and kids including famous and contemporary works celebrating Black Activists and Authors. These displays will continue through February in celebration of Black History Month.

In addition, we will be honoring Betty White’s birthday and her own activism by having her biography on display.

The library will be closed Monday, 1/17/2022, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Get Started with the Libby App (Overdrive)

Overdrive has been the way to check out (e)books, (e)audiobooks, and (e)magazines for years now. Libby is the new go to app/website that grants you access to NH Downloadable Books/Overdrive in a sleek and easy to use new interface. Overdrive will slowly be phasing out the old Overdrive app and all users are encouraged to migrate to Libby. It’s quite simple to do with just your library card! Check out how to get started in the video below.

Peruse at your leisure. If you have any questions please e-mail us or give us a call at (603) 253-6950.

Library Welcomes New Director!

Board of Trustees Chair Ann Xavier welcomes new Director Aisilyn Guivens


I would like to introduce myself as the new Director of this library! My name is Aisilyn and I am a New Hampshire native, now residing in Maine. I earned my Bachelor’s in History from Plymouth State University, where I worked at the Museum of the White Mountains under the direction of the Archivist and took part in several projects dedicated to sharing and preserving White Mountain history. As part of my studies, I also worked on a research project specifically focused on Center Harbor history and the town’s involvement in hosting the first Intercollegiate Sporting event in the country! I later earned my Master’s in Library Information Science and Technology from Simmons, which I finished earlier this year. I am excited to be back in the mountains and to get to know the community!

With that said, I would also like to announce the Library’s new hours! We are open Monday and Tuesday from 10AM to 6 PM, Thursday from 9AM to 1PM, and Friday and Saturday from 10AM to 1PM.

Please stop in, say hi and maybe grab a good book to cozy up with as we welcome the winter weather!
