The Library's Mission
The Howard Whittemore Memorial Library is a non-profit association library dedicated to providing the residents of Naugatuck with free and reliable access to books and other information resources, as well as educational, cultural, and entertaining programs.
As set forth in the Deed of Gift establishing the Howard Whittemore Memorial Library, John Howard Whittemore transferred the building, grounds and endowment to the Library Board of Trustees. The Trustees, then and now, include a representative from each of the five churches in existence in Naugatuck in 1894.
