The Concord library has some really lovely spaces to sit and work in. It is also part of the Minuteman libary network so they can basically order from all the libraries in suburban Boston and have items delivered to the Concord branch, just takes a couple days.

This library should be a stop for any visitors to Concord. It is less than 5 mins walk from the town center. Its historical building has a lot of architecture details and a charming children room. There are many original oil paintings and a wide selection of books and museum passes.

The Concord Public Library has a great website that allows a user to browse, put holds on books, and check in to see what the user has checked out. There is also the option of receiving phone texts and or email to notify users about materials that are coming due.

The Wyeth exhibit was interesting and well done for what I would describe as a small town library. Well worth the time to check it out.

The building itself is beautiful, plenty of polished wood, wonderful layout, open spaces and separate rooms for quiet study and reading. Comfortable chairs in most rooms and the area near the front desk. Good book selection and an art exhibit. I wanted to stay just to enjoy the beauty of the building.

My wife is a librarian, so we make an effort to visit libraries whenever we travel and had high expectations for the Concord Public Library, given the historical significance and literary tradition of the area. It is a lovely little library that I am quite sure serves its local public as it should, but we didn't find much there that... More

I live in Concord and the library is one of my favorite places. It's definitely a rock of the community, but if you're visiting it's also a nice place to swing by. There are busts of many of the local figures, some lovely art and a gallery featuring an artist upstairs. You can read the paper or pick a book... More

A friend of mine and I needed to meet halfway between our residences and Concord Library was a perfect midway point. Although we weren't residents of Concord, we were allowed to use one of the conference rooms. The library itself is pleasant and comfortable.
