About Us

Lamson Library was named for and dedicated to Dr. Herbert H. Lamson, a beloved science teacher of 34 years, who, although a Dartmouth-degreed medical doctor, devoted his life instead to teaching and supporting this institution’s library development.Lamson Library spans a history of over 130 years, from a one-room facility serving Plymouth Normal School, through several expansions, relocations, and renovations as Plymouth Teachers College, then Plymouth State College, to the current multi-level 21st-century facility providing state-of-the-art information resources and services to over 4,800 undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty of Plymouth State University. It is the largest publicly accessible library in central/northern New Hampshire, second largest overall after Dartmouth College.The Library’s current total collections number over 900,000 volumes/units, including over 300,000 cataloged print volumes, over 10,000 cataloged non-print items (video/DVD, music CD’s, and other media), and over 500,000 microform units.
