Building for the Future

Dear Members of the Greater Hampstead Community:

In an effort to provide additional safe places for the community to gather, the Hampstead Public Library has been working to improve outdoor spaces.  A sturdy StoryWalk® and a safe off-street path to the Storybook Garden were achieved in 2021, due to grants and generous donations.

The next goal set forth by the Library Board of Trustees is to build a 20 x 40-foot roofed pavilion on the Library’s front lawn. It is to serve all ages and facilitate outdoor meetings and programs, such as toddler story time, various classes, book discussions, craft activities, and much more. The planned structure provides wheelchair-accessibility, and is equipped with electricity and a wireless internet connection.

We need your help. This pavilion project is being funded entirely by grants and contributions from community members like you.

The Brick Fundraiser is helping to pave the way to this new outdoor community space. The bricks are to be incorporated into a finished walkway that links the new pavilion to the parking lot. You can be a part of the future by sponsoring a commemorative brick.

Your bricks can

  • celebrate a special event.
  • honor a friend or loved one.
  • highlight an organization’s objective.
  • publicize a business with a logo or a message.

Each brick purchased supports the Library’s ongoing mission to enrich lives, encourage lifelong learning, and embrace our ever-changing future. To order a brick, please go

If you prefer to fill out a paper order form, you can get one at the Library or download it HERE and print it at home. Completed forms and checks can be dropped-off or mailed to the Library. You can also pay with credit card at the Library. Brick orders and other donations to the Hampstead Public Library are tax-deductible.

Please consider helping the Library improve services by contributing to this outdoor expansion project. Buy a brick and be part of a permanent community fixture!

As always, we appreciate your continued support as we build for the future of the Town and the Library.
