About Us

The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Portsmouth Free Public Library. It consists of members who are elected from the Portsmouth Free Public Library Association. Membership is open to all residents of the Town of Portsmouth who are eighteen years of age and pay annual dues. The Portsmouth Town Council may appoint two Trustees. The Trustees serve without remuneration of any kind. Non Residents may join the Association but do not have voting rights.

The Book Nook is a small ongoing book sale that is staffed by volunteers and is open during regular library hours.  A variety of adult fiction & non-fiction titles are available along with some children's books.  The stock is always changing so visit often.  The proceeds from this book sale help fund library services.

If you wish to donate books for this sale, please feel free to put books in good condition in the plastic bins near the door to the Book Nook.  Please do not drop off encyclopedias, textbooks or magazines.
