The Pope Memorial Library is named after Mr. Lyman Pope, our very generous benefactor who gifted the library $3 million to renovate and expand our historic building in North Conway Village. The library broke ground in the fall 2019 and undertook the bulk of construction during the pandemic which made it easier to keep the building closed to visitors but dampened our efforts to continue with our major fundraising through our Capital Campaign. Delays and the rise in construction costs added to the project and we continue our efforts to finalize our fundraising campaign.

We are a privately funded, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We receive no regular funds from the Town of Conway, the State of New Hampshire, or the federal government. Our major sources of income are donations, fundraisers, and bequests. However, the North Conway Water Precinct membership votes to raise and appropriate $10,000 each year for the purpose of supporting our programs. Thank you, NCWP!

We appreciate the support of our community. Please consider including the Pope Memorial Library in your charitable donations or estate planning. Any amount will be greatly appreciated! Contributions are fully tax-deductible within the limits of state and federal law.
