North Hampton Public Library & Cultural Center Foundation





Supporting our Library

The North Hampton Public Library and Cultural Center Foundation (NHPL&CC Foundation) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit whose mission is to support the North Hampton Public Library and Cultural Center. Most recently, the NHPL&CC Foundation has been focused on providing funds for building, furnishing, landscaping, and equipping a new library which was completed in August 2021, only 18 months after voter approval.

  • Working with the North Hampton Public Library Trustees, the NHPL&CC Foundation supplemented funds available to the Trustees to ensure the new library is a modern, comfortable, spacious, relaxing environment with accessible technology and gathering spaces for library patrons and the public.

  • The NHPL&CC Foundation takes no position on the location, costs, design, or timing of the library project. Foundation grants to the Library are non-restricted and as a result, all decisions on how funds are used are solely at the discretion of the Library Trustees.

  • For brief overview of the Library project, please refer to the Library website.
