Hanover’s Public Library Since 1911
Welcome! Guthrie Memorial Library - Hanover's Public Library is a welcoming environment representing education, recreation, and progress, forming a cultural connection that joins people through text, technology, and meeting spaces.
Our vision: To give Hanover area residents access to the information they need in order to live their best lives.
Enjoy three levels of community spaces, technology, and a friendly staff in your community library. Located just three blocks from the center of town on Route 94, we have been welcoming Hanover area families since 1911. We are known for our fun and educational activities for everyone in the family, and our early childhood programs are designed to meet state educational standards. Author visits, a teen library, a special space for kids, and high-speed Internet access can all be yours when you visit Guthrie Memorial Library!
Looking for information about our Pennsylvania Room? Please note that the PA Room houses special collections and rare materials and is only available for limited hours - it is not open the same hours as the rest of the library. Here is the monthly schedule of hours for the PA Room for September 2023. You can learn more about the Pennsylvania Room on our Amenities & Offerings page.
On-site access to Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org is still available during all of the library's opening hours at any of the computers in our adult computer lab. Ancestry.com access is provided through a generous donation from Monna Hormel.
