The New Hampshire State Library – the first state library in America – is celebrating its 300th anniversary this year.

While the New Hampshire State Library continues to be a centralized location for state and government documents, its collection also focuses on New Hampshire authors and illustrators, New Hampshire topics and library science materials. State Library staff provides library services to residents, scholars, visitors, elected officials and librarians throughout the Granite State.

Throughout the year, the State Library will post 300 fun facts of information about the library, as well as New Hampshire library history and New Hampshire literary history, on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.
