Established in 1873 through a generous gift from E.J.M Hale, the Haverhill Public Library has a long history of public support through individual gifts and donations. The Library, which is a 501C-3 not for profit organization, encourages the interest and involvement of citizens and organizations through bequests, trusts, or donations of monetary or other assets for Library purposes. It is understood that special gifts and bequests should not take the place of public support or cost-effective use of current income, but should enable the Library to provide and enhance services in ways not financially possible within the current annual operating budget.

See the library’s Donations and Gifts Policy page.
