Profile - Madbury Public Library

Our library began just a few years ago with several hundred books in a closet at our Town Hall. The library was legally established in March of 2001. We moved to our present location in 2003 and are just down the street from the Town Hall. We serve the Madbury community, a town of about 1750 people. As a young library we are always looking of ways to involve the community in lively, meaningful and creative discussions and events.

The Big Read is one way to bring us all together and to encourage us to discuss issues which never seem to go away. Our book group, and others, will meet to discuss Fahrenheit 451 on October 2nd. On October 29th at 7 p. m. Dave Mackey will lead us in a thoughtful discussion of “Surveillance in the Post 9-11 world.” We invite residents of Durham and Lee to join us that evening. We have several other events, hosted by Durham or Lee, which will also encourage participation by residents of the three communities.

Madbury Library is located at 9 Town Hall Road, Madbury, NH 03823. Phone 603-743-1400
