The Wiggin Memorial Library is a town resource that benefits just about everyone in the community, offering story times for younger children, a summer reading program, research areas for high school and college students, and adult recreational books plus tapes, CDs and DVDs.
The Wiggin Memorial Library is located adjacent to the Stratham Town offices in the heart of the town. It is open six days and five nights per week with a staff of nine including the librarian, a children's librarian and a newly appointed teen librarian. It has a total media collection of almost 37,000 items, including books, magazines, videotapes, compact disks, art prints, and books on tape. Museum passes are also available to three Boston and eight New Hampshire museums. The staff has also researched and recommended web sites for various interests from gardens to Native Americans.
It's not surprising that Wiggin Memorial Library is a popular community resource: fully 71% of the population are registered library cardholders versus the national norm of 25-30%.
