The Library’s role in Concord is diverse and dynamic – it is a gathering place, a center of discovery and innovation, and an internationally recognized archive of the Colonial, Revolutionary, and literary history of Concord.

We have launched this $10 million Connecting Our Community Campaign to create new, vibrant, and collaborative spaces while preserving the Library’s cherished historic rooms and alcoves.

 

“Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.”
