1895 Floor Plan A Brief 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.


Friends of the Nahant Public Library

Friends Introduction
The Friends of the Nahant Public Library are organized to raise money to supplement  town funding of the Library. The Friends support the Library through book sales and bake sales and membership. The money raised is used for both adult and children's programming . The Friends also support other needs of the library not funded by budget appropriations such as refinishing furniture, special book purchases, newspaper and magazine subscriptions, copier upkeep and other building needs.

Donations
As of March, 2005, the Friends organization has registered with the Internal Revenue Service and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a tax-exempt Corporation. This allows the Friends to accept donations that are tax deductible. Any donation over $250 will automatically be answered with a tax letter sent back to you. If you want a tax letter for donations under $250, you need only attach a note to your check and the tax letter will be sent. These special donations will go directly to repairs and expansion of your library.
