Library Policies
We have policies in order to maintain consistent, fair and exceptional library service to all Stratham residents. These policies determine how we add to (and remove from) the collection, who can have a library card and the rules for the card, expected library behavior, who can meet in the library and what can be displayed here, appropriate use of nonprint library resources (like the Internet and databases), and the library's overall mission.These policies may help you better understand how the library works for you. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of the library policies, please contact the Library Director, Lesley Kimball, at 772-4346 or by e-mail at
