Library Offerings

Welcome to the Samuel H. Wentworth Library email:
35 Main Street  / PO Box 146    Center Sandwich, NH 03227  Telephone: 603-284-6665 / Fax: 603-284-9226
Current hours are Monday - Thursday 12 - 6, Friday 12:30 - 6 and Saturday 9:30 - 1
Now open for 30 minute drop-in visits as well as curbside pickup. As of Wednesday, September 22, 2021, properly worn masks are required during open hours for all patrons aged 3 and older while inside the library building.  
At their September meeting, the Library Board of Trustees voted to require masks as one part of the library’s mitigation efforts to protect our community and staff during this time of increased COVID transmission. Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and consideration!
If you prefer to access library items without entering the building, we still offer Curbside Pickup. You can reserve or request items via the online catalog, email or phone and we will leave them on the table downstairs for pick up during open hours.        

The Friends of Samuel H. Wentworth Library 2021 book sale during Old Home Week in August was a great success. Thank you to all that donated items, volunteered many hours to prepare and run the sale, and to everyone that shopped! The Friends are continuing to accept donations for the 2022 sale and welcome volunteers that are interested in sorting books for the next sale. Contact the Library for more information.

We are now offering both the Kanopy & Kanopy Kids video streaming platform to our patrons year round. This offering is made possible with the generous support of a NH Humanities CARES Act grant that was awarded in 2020. To learn more about the NH Humanities organization and the fine work they do on behalf of all NH residents please visit:    To learn how to use Kanopy with your current Samuel H.
