Portsmouth Public Library

Situated in the heart of the vibrant Seacoast community of Portsmouth, NH, the library welcomes all to enjoy the richness of its collections, services and programs. The Library was established by ordinance in May 1881 as a free public library “for the use of all of our citizens.” In accordance with its mission, the Library serves as a gateway to reading, information, culture, community activities, and cultural heritage. The Library is a highly performing institution aimed at meeting local needs and, as much as possible, bringing global possibilities to the Portsmouth community.
