The library has an extensive collection of non-fiction and biographical resources available for checkout or in-library use:
The New Hampshire Room collection for in-library use is an excellent resource for state and regional history and genealogical studies. It includes town histories and reports, maps, fictional accounts and obituaries. The room also contains current New Hampshire statutes, tax assessments, and town records.
The library’s inter-library loan system also makes available the resources and materials at other New Hampshire libraries for our patrons to borrow. Inquire at the Circulation Desk for more information about requesting these materials. Search for items to borrow with NHU-PAC.
Looking for health resources? Check out these pamphlets for helpful in-library and local area resources for Alcohol Addiction and Drug Addiction. The library also carries an assortment of local resources related to hospice care, health insurance questions, and mental health resources.
The main entryway is a good place to start when looking for information about local resources and organizations related to senior services, identity theft protection, tax services, veteran services, energy audits, professional development, and adult education.
The library also provides access to a large list of reliable and professional databases including subjects such as: reader’s advisory, law and economics, auto purchasing, consumer reports, new archives, general reference, and health.
Several databases are dedicated exclusively to genealogy services, including Ancestry.com and Family Search.
There are many online resources you can access to work on your New Hampshire genealogy research from the comfort of your own home, when our library building is closed. Here are some examples of commonly used print or microfilm resources in our library that you can also access in a digitized format online.
