Updates -Local Author Talks
The Friends are happy to sponsor local authors who wish to use the library meeting rooms as a venue for sharing their work with the community.
Please access the Library website to determine the location and size of meeting rooms available, and to review the Library's Room Reservation Policy for use of those rooms before contacting the Friends.
Authors may create a flier which the Friends will post in the Portsmouth libraries and send to the membership of the Friends to help promote the event. All other promotion is the responsibility of the author.

ALL BOOK DONATIONS FOR THE FRIENDS MAY BE LEFT AT ANY OF THE FOUR LIBRARY LOCATIONS!
We are not currently picking up books from residences. Please note we are not able to sell encyclopedias and National Geographics. Importantly - our volunteers cannot handle moldy, buggy, boxes or bags!
