Guthrie Memorial Library

Hanover’s Public Library Since 1911

Due to the Pandemic, some of our library services are not currently available. Please visit our COVID-19 Reopening page for details.

Welcome! Enjoy three levels of community spaces, technology, and a friendly staff.  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!

We're Open for Browsing & Lobby Pickup

Come visit us and refresh your reading supply! Rather than our traditional “sit and read” library setting, it is a renewed “browse and go” experience. This is part of our current reopening phase and the extra measures we’re taking to provide you with a safe and healthy library environment.
