New Hampshire State Documents

March 30th, 2020 · No Comments · City Library, Government Documents, Main Branch, News, West Branch

The New Hampshire state depository provides state documents to New Hampshire libraries.  They send the Manchester City Library current legislation from the house and senate.  They also send magazines, newsletters and other items pertaining to New Hampshire.  Most items can now be found online.  As the new State Documents Coordinator, I’ve been tasked with breathing new life into state documents.  Upon looking through dozens of House Bills introduced in 2019, inspiration was found.  Some bills are serious and very timely, some just made me chuckle.  The list starts with my favorite bill.  Please see the websites at the end for more information.  Enjoy!
