Currently, we have passes available for: Castle in the Clouds, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, Libby Natural Science Museum, and Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm. Our Portland Museum of Art pass is valid through June 30, after which we will no longer have that pass available. Borrow our pass to visit for free! For more information, click here.

Borrow our new Telescope!

Now that the weather is clearing up, it's a great time to borrow the library's new telescope, recently donated to us by the New Hampshire Astronomical Society.  The telescope circulates for a week, and is available for patrons 18+ to check out. For more information, visit us at the library, or check out our Telescope Lending Policy.

Downloadable Titles Now Show in Library's Catalog!

When you click on Search Our Catalog on the library's main page, you will see not only what the library has within its four walls, but also the audiobooks and eBooks available to patrons on the NH Downloadables site. These titles will show up near the bottom of the search results and be labeled either OverDrive Audiobook or OverDrive eBook. When you click on a title, you will be prompted to log in to your patron account if you're not already. Then click on "Download This Title" and you will be taken directly to that item on the downloadables site (you'll be logged in already!) and you can check it out or place a hold on it right then and there. Try it out! Contact the library at (603) 539-5176 if you need help or have questions.

Books on Wheels

Service to Home-bound Patrons

The Freedom Public Library is pleased to announce our home delivery service, Books on Wheels. This program provides services to Freedom residents who are unable to get to the library due to short/long term illness, physical challenges, visual disabilities, inability to drive, hospitalization or long-term care residence. Some of the benefits of our Books on Wheels program are personalized visits by a library volunteer and delivery of materials tailored to your preferences. We can deliver books, movies, magazines and audio books right to your home. If you or someone you know would like this service, please call the Freedom Public Library at (603) 539-5176.
