Going south on Route 12, turn left in Charlestown onto Sullivan Street. If you pass the Jiffy Mart, you missed the turn! At .6 of a mile, turn right at the Y intersection onto the Acworth Road. Travel 7.5 miles, steadily climbing uphill. At the top, you will finally enter the small village of Acworth with a large white church on the left. Immediately, you will be in an intersection of tar and dirt roads. The library is a small brick building almost straight ahead on the left side of the dirt road called Lynn Hill Road. Use this dirt road to enter the parking lot of the library. The phone at the library is 603-835-2150. The Library is open on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 11:30am - 5:30pm and Saturdays & Sundays from 11:30am - 4:30pm.
