Welcome To Hill Public Library
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the library will be closed effective March 18, 2020, until further notice. Governor Sununu issued a State of Emergency Friday, March 13, for the State of NH. The library trustees are committed to doing our part in protecting our patrons and librarian during this time. Please visit our webpage or Facebook page for further updates. Please avail yourselves of the State of NH Library through the downloadable link on the website. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Over 125 years ago the Hill Public Library was opened for the residents in the old village with 105 volumes in circulation. Today we have over 12,500 volumes with access to thousands more via interlibrary loans and over 50,000 more via eBooks and audiobooks. Our librarian orders books that will interest a wide variety of readers, from the latest adult best seller to the imaginative picture book. Books and magazines can be ordered from other libraries or downloaded to your device. Weekly programs benefit those looking to make friends at Dewey’s Cafe, discuss the latest novel at the Book Club, or hear a story and make a craft at the Children’s Hour. Periodic special events are added as they become available. So, every age group in Hill can find something to benefit them and although many years have passed, the library continues to provide quality material, services and programs to its patrons.

Friends Of Hill Public Library
The Friends of the Hill Public Library, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1993; exactly 100 years after the library was founded. The purpose of the “Friends” is to focus attention on the library, to increase and improve the facilities and services of the library, and to stimulate use of the library’s resources. Through the years, the group has provided books, programming, and other materials not supported by the library’s budget.
