About Us

RHLThe Reuben Hoar Library has been serving the Littleton community since 1887.  We are currently housed in a beautiful, newly constructed building near Town Hall and the Littleton Council on Aging.  Construction was made possible thanks to funding from the Littleton tax-payers, donations, and a $6.4 million dollar grant from the Massachusetts Public Library Construction Grant program.  Opened to the public on November 5, 2021, we serve over 80,000 patrons every year and circulate hundreds of thousands of books, DVDs, audiobooks, periodicals, and electronic materials.  We also have on-going and special programs for children, teens, and adults sponsored by the Friends of the Reuben Hoar Library.

In addition to the many programs we offer.  Several of the library staff are notaries and offer the service for free.  We have four small study rooms and two larger meeting spaces available to reserve. There are multiple quiet areas in the library to sit and study or read a good book!  Enjoy art work in our gallery with monthly exhibitions from local artists.  Research local history in our Houghton Historical Room or use one of our many computers to research or print materials.  You can also visit our Friends Book Sale Room or borrow a museum pass!

The library is located at 35 Shattuck Street directly behind Littleton Town Hall.
