The Bridges House Library Mission Statement

The mission of The Bridges House Library is to maintain a display collection in The Bridges House to highlight the history and rich literary traditions of the Granite state. Significant works about the history of the state, representative works by well-known New Hampshire writers, and books that describe the society and culture of our state are included. This collection is intended to serve as a demonstration library about our state, providing focus for discussion of New Hampshire history and literary heritage during public and private tours as well as for special events at The Bridges House. Holdings at The Bridges House highlight the comprehensive collection available for use by the public at the New Hampshire State Library.
