About McQuade Library

Library Mission

McQuade Library fosters the intellectual growth of the Merrimack community of lifelong learners and serves as a valuable center of information resources and customized instruction.

McQuade Library is an evolving center for learning, study and research. Rich in traditional print materials, media, and digital resources, it provides work spaces for groups as well as quiet corners for solitary study. Skilled and dedicated staff members are ready to assist students with anything from a simple article request to a full-scale research project, facilitating use of the broad-ranging collections both physical and virtual.
