Fundraising tops $1 Million!

We are excited to announce that, thanks to the generous support of 489 local residents and businesses, we have exceeded our $1 million fundraising goal for the construction of Littleton’s first stand-alone, purpose built library building!  Thank you to all who helped us to meet this important milestone.


The Library Trustees and Friends of the RHL are fundraising to offset the cost to the taxpayers of Littleton

5 Reasons to Build a New Littleton Library

Accessibility for Everyone

Everyone deserves equal access to the library. Although the library has made as many accommodations as possible, the size and layout of the building simply prevents truly equal access to all. 

Dedicated Young Adult area and increased Children's Room space

The new library will provide young adults with their own dedicated room to study and socialize in a safe environment. The expanded children's area will include a craft and storytime area to allow expansion of Children's programming.

Public Meeting Space

Additional public meeting spaces will provide the town with much-needed space for large and small groups.

LEED-certified green building

Building a green building is not just a good idea, it will save the town money on energy costs and qualify the project for additional grant funding.

Study and work spaces

The additional of quiet study and work spaces will benefit students as well as remote workers.
