Welcome to Hampton Public Library

This years marks the 125th anniversary of the inception of the public library in the city of Hampton. We are grateful to each of you for your support and patronage in making it possible to celebrate this milestone. The Library is having a funding drive to raise "$50,000 in 50 days." If you are interested in donating to this restoration project that comes at a significant cost, contact the Library 641-456-4451.
