All Portsmouth Public Library cardholders are invited to sign up for the Summer Reading Program. This year, we’re offering three programs for youth ages 2 – 18, and now a fourth for ADULTS! You can earn rewards and prizes from June 15 – August 10.

This year’s Summer Program is titled A Universe of Stories, so we’ll be offering outer space programs, events, activities and book recommendations throughout the summer.

Can’t make the kickoff? Sign up at the Youth Services Desk (ages 2 – 18) or the Main Circulation Desk (adults) any time before August 10!
