The Artist Curated Book Display program series returns to the Portsmouth Public Library with an exhibit and display created by local painter, Kate Crowell.
Two of Crowell’s paintings will be on display in the main stairwell of the library for the month of January. Also on display will be a curated collection of ten items from the library collection that she has found inspirational at some point in her life. The list includes a couple of books that have been loaned to us by other libraries within the state. To learn more about interlibrary loan click here.

The ACBD program is an opportunity for artists to share their work with the public and to emphasize how the public library is a resource for creativity.
The ACBD series got a little bit of national attention when it was featured on the Library as Incubator Project blog back in 2013.
The first artist to participate in the series was Roger Goldenberg.
Also to participate in the series was local photographer, Nancy Grace Horton.
Local painter, Rose Umerlik, created an interesting display that included highlighted quotes and images.
The series will continue on an irregular basis. To be alerted about future displays, sign up for our online newsletter, or follow us on social media.
