Eastern Shore Public Library

Northampton Free Library


The Northampton Free Library is an active, community focused branch of the Eastern Shore Public Library system. Close to the county line, we serve both Accomack and Northampton county residents.


April computer classes












Continuing library programs are run and sponsored by the Friends of Northampton Free Library. 


We now have 75 BOOK CLUB BAGS available for any book club or reading group on the shore. Filled with 10 to 12 copies of each title and a discussion resource guide, they are great for established or new clubs. Check out our special page with the titles and more information.

The library’s book club, the SEASIDE READERS meet on the third Thursday of every month at 2:00 in the library’s meeting room. We welcome new members.

The list of titles chosen for the coming year can be found below:
