Interlibrary Loans

The Lincoln Public Library is a small library with limited financial means. In an effort to accommodate the diverse needs of all registered patrons, the library will make full use of the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) System and all resources from the New Hampshire State Library.

Meeting Room

Meeting space in the library may be reserved for use by educational, civic, cultural, and non-partisan governmental groups provided no admission is charged for an event nor any monetary transactions transpire. However, library sponsored presenters pre-approved by the Library Director may sell materials related to their presentation. The meeting room may be reserved no more than 30 days in advance. Meeting space may not be reserved by commercial or denominational groups. Library sponsored programs and activities will receive priority. If the meeting includes children under the age of 18, they must be supervised by an adult (one adult for every 15 minors).

Thanks to a very generous sponsorship by Friends of the Lincoln Library, the library is once again able to purchase passes to area museums, art galleries and other attractions. The passes are available on a first come first served basis to patrons of good standing.
