2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the Concord Free Public Library’s founding through the generosity and vision of William Munroe, a Concord native who developed a desire to use his accumulated wealth to benefit the town where he had been born and raised. Special events celebrating this milestone will be happening throughout the year, culminating in the official anniversary on October 1, 2023.

The CFPL Corporation is proud to be an integral part of these celebrations.
