UPDATE FROM MAY 4th: 

The governor's emergency Stay@Home Order 2.0 does not include the 234 independent NH libraries.   Thus, our library will remain closed to non-library staff until the end of May or until the governor updates his directives. 

Following the guidance of public health officials during this time is paramount, for the safety of staff and the public.

 LIBRARY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Piermont Public Library will be closed following the school closure mandate by Governor Sununu.  Since Grafton County has active Covid-19 cases, it is prudent for the health of our patrons and staff to close the library. 
Items are returned in the outside dropbox will be bagged, put upstairs in quarantine for two weeks, then wiped down and reshelved. 
Thank you for your patience.

Be Well,
Margaret and Jim
