We would like to ask you to please wear your mask in the library. Also, as many of you know access to the building is through your library card so please remember to bring it with you. Thank you.

The Gordon-Nash Library is a non-profit library in New Hampton, New Hampshire, operated by New Hampton School. This library was established, endowed, and this building erected, through the generous bequest of Stephen Gordon Nash (1822-1894), a ripe scholar, a just judge, and an upright man. He gave the fruits of industry and thrift to bless the village of his birth.
