HISTORY OF THE LIBRARY

The Nahant Public Library was founded in 1819, the third oldest in Massachusetts after Franklin and Harvard. Our library became a free public library in 1872. The present library building was designed by the Boston firm of Ball and Dabney, and opened June 1, 1895, and was the first electrified building in Nahant.

LIBRARY MISSION STATEMENT

The Nahant Public Library, an essential public institution, strives to serve as an accessible and responsive information and literary center for all residents of the Nahant community and beyond. In a welcoming environment, with diverse materials, programs and services, the library’s mission is to stimulate the imagination, nurture literacy, and promote cultural enrichment. The Nahant Public Library also provides access to the tools, technological and traditional, which empower people to find and use information and encourage lifelong learning.
