About the Library
The Jaffrey Public Library is located at 38 Main Street in beautiful downtown Jaffrey, NH, home to Mount Monadnock. We offer both a print and digital collection for chidlren, teens and adults, as well as modern library services and programming for all ages.
The Jaffrey Public Library is committed to meeting the diverse needs of the community, opening doors to lifelong learning and discovery. We have redefined literacy for the 21st century to go beyond traditional literacy and include health, environmental, technological and digital literacy, reaching a wide range of individuals, across all age brackets and socioeconomic backgrounds. We believe that an informed and technologically literate citizenry guarantees the future economic and social vitality of rural communities.
Designed in the Romanesque Revival style, the Library was originally named for its benefactress Susan B. Clay and dedicated on July 4, 1896. The Soldiers' Monument in front of the Library, dedicated in 1900, commemorates those who served in the American Revolution, War of 1812, and Mexican and Civil Wars.
