We are preparing the building to reopen to the public for a few days a week starting mid- to late-September. The library has new capacity limits so that we can maintain social distancing, and wearing masks or face coverings will be required. Virtual programming, curbside pick-up, and outside services will continue. Stay tuned for details!

Mission Statement


As the town's learning center, the Merrimack Public Library will acquire and provide access to a variety of information sources and will offer a robust slate of programming to promote life-long learning. The staff provides dynamic and responsive service to its information consumers through both physical and virtual environments to build a strong, literate community and to improve the quality of life in Merrimack.
