Library Charter

Document interpretation of our particular library charter:

The library association was established in the 1880s
A deed of trust was recorded in 1887 from Mary Hall Cummings to representatives from Tilton and Northfield.

The first association was dissolved in the 1970s and reestablished as the Tilton-Northfield Library Association,  a voluntary association with particular rules and regulations listed below:
  • Maintaining and operation a library and reading room for the people of said towns
  • Holding responsibility for all the physical assets of said library
  • Holding responsibility for all monies used for said library
  • Establishing rules and regulations for the library
  • Electing officers
  • Meeting as needed but at least yearly
  • Keeping records of said meetings
  • Making sure that the property is properly insured
  • Choosing successors for the life long members with representation from each of the towns
  • Making sure that the building is not used for purposes other that those associated with a library
  • Making sure that the library is open to all
