The Etna Library

The original Hanover Town Library. Located in Etna, NH.

Where yesterday mingles with today, beneath one roof.

Call us the Hanover Town Library because our Classical Revival building was the first library for the entire town of Hanover. Or, call us the Etna Library, because of our location and our status as a cornerstone of the Etna community.

No matter which name you choose, we've been connecting people with ideas, entertainment, and one another since 1905, and will continue to for years to come!
