Many people have asked the Nashua Public Library if they can buy copies of The Nashua Experience: History in the Making, 1673–1978, written by a committee of Nashuans headed up by former Library Director Clarke S. Davis. Unfortunately, the book is out of print, and the library has no new copies on hand. However, until December 30, when you buy the book’s sequel, The Nashua Experience: A Three-Decade Upgrade, 1978–2008, at the library for $25, you will receive a gently used copy of the earlier book free, while supplies last.
The second book was written by three Nashua librarians. Its story begins in the mayoral administration of Maurice Arel and ends with that of Donnalee Lozeau, the city’s first female mayor. Richly complemented by dozens of photographs, the book is a keepsake and invaluable resource for anyone who loves Nashua, from those who called it home from 1978 to 2008, to the newest residents who want to better know their new hometown.
The library accepts cash and checks only as payment.
