In January 1896, the Andover Public Library opened to the public.  It was first located in the Congregational Church Conference House, and shared space with some of the town’s school children.On November 12, 1927, a new building on the corner of Long Hill Road and Route 6 was dedicated as the town’s library: the Burnap Skinner Memorial Library.  Today, the library now known as the Andover Public Library is still a thriving part of the community, and we invite everyone to stop by and see how much material can be found in such a small building.  Throughout the year, the library hosts a myriad of events for the entire community, including book discussions for adults, Storytime for kids, WiFi and computer access, access to eBooks and audios through Libby (OverDrive), museum passes to area attractions, and, of course, lots of books, DVDs, and audiobooks for all ages.
