Portsmouth Free Public Library is always grateful for support, whether it comes in the form of a financial donation, donation of materials, or donation of time as a volunteer. Thank you for your interest in supporting your Library!
There are many ways you can help support the operations of Portsmouth Free Public Library.
  • Financial Support – fill out a "Donation Form" you can pick up from any of our Library administration staff.
  • Matching gifts - Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Library supporters to maximize personal contributions and increase the impact of a gift. By taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution. Please contact your employer’s Human Resource department to determine the availability of a matching gift benefit.
  • Donate to the Library through a payroll deduction to the United Way of RI. Our agency number is 6729.
  • Memorial Donations to honor a loved one or to celebrate a birthday with a special book with a bookplate.
