The Boscawen Public Library has always been a reflection of the community it is proud to serve. The library was voted into existence at the town meeting in March 1892. The Town Hall housed the library starting the next year, with a collection of 108 books. Samuel Allen was first librarian. The space soon became crowded and insufficient. John Kimball, Benjamin A. Kimball, and Frank L. Gerrish donated a majority of the funds to build a new library. Guy Lowell, a nationally renowned architect, designed the building in upper Boscawen, dedicated in 1913.
