Our Mission

The Weare Public Library seeks to promote reading and literacy in the community, provide access to information, and acquire and make available educational and recreational resources and activities for the benefit of all patrons.

How to find us…

The Weare Public Library is located just off Route 114 in Weare center, on Paige Memorial Lane. This lane runs between the Philbrick-Clement American Legion Post and the Weare Historical Society. Our main entrance is just off the parking lot at the end of the lane.

Some of what we offer…

The library collection includes books for all ages, magazines, audiobooks and videos. We have public access computers available at no charge to residents and non-residents upon sign-up. Users are not allowed to download to our hard drives, so personal storage media are necessary.

Currently we have passes to the SEE Science Center, McAuliffe Shepard Discovery Center, Children’s Museum in Dover, NH, Squam Lakes Science Center and Currier Gallery.

We also offer online downloadable audio books to anyone with a Weare library card. Ask us if you need assistance with this service.

There are programs monthly for preschoolers and there’s a book discussion for adults which usually meets the fourth Wednesday at 7 P.M. Other programs are scheduled throughout the year.

Our library offers fax service at a rate of $2 a page sending and $1 a page receiving.
