Visit Portsmouth Public Library’s Levenson Community Room for Racial Unity Team’s exhibit of the results from its fourth annual Art & Poetry Challenge to New Hampshire and Maine Seacoast communities. Exhibitors, from kindergartners to adults, infuse new energy, creativity, growth, and understanding into the theme of equity.

On Saturday, June 25 from 2 to 4 PM, stop by for a reception under the tent in the field beside the library, with conversation and refreshments.

Racial Unity Team’s mission is to advance relationships among people of different racial identities, increase understanding, and reduce racial bias in our communities. For more about their work, please visit racialunityteam.com.


About Library Exhibits


Exhibit and display space in the Portsmouth Public Library is used to highlight Library collections, services, and events.

As scheduling permits, the Library also makes available space for groups, organizations, or individuals to exhibit in the library. Space is provided for educational, cultural, civic, or recreational exhibits with the following goals:

  • To broaden horizons by presenting a wide range of art, collections, or displays
  • To support community educational, cultural and artistic activities
  • To nourish intellectual, aesthetic and creative growth

Visiting exhibits are on display for one month, but shorter time periods can be arranged if space permits. To discuss an educational, cultural, civic or recreational exhibit contact Nicole Cloutier at (603) 766-1725 or through our contact form.
