Keene Public Library offers innovative outreach programs to meet the needs of all segments of our community.

Arrangements can be made for a memorial trust, planned giving, or a stock gift. A member of the Keene Public Library Board of Trustees will be happy to discuss with you what your interest is and how we might join together for the benefit of the community.
