Mission Statement


The Hanover Town Library in Etna provides library materials and services to community members of all ages and backgrounds, with the aim of inspiring and supporting lifelong learning, literacy, creativity, recreational passions, and cultural expression, all within the welcoming walls of our historic building, and beyond.

Note: While the Etna Library and the Howe Library collaborate when possible for the benefit of all Hanover residents, the two are separate libraries with unique staff/management, trustees, budgets, and missions.
