Portsmouth Public Library Programs the week of July 22 – 27


Summer Reading Finale July 27 – We will be celebrating the end of Summer Reading at the Portsmouth Library with our Universe of Stories, Summer Reading Finale. We kick off the celebration at 11am with Magician Joey Stepp. The whole family is sure to love his show packed with comedy, magic, and audience participation. Following the show, we will announce our Summer Reading grand prize winners. Barkers Petting Zoo will have exotic animals at the library for everyone to pet and there will be free carnival games that children 12 and under can play from 12-2pm. Ages 18 and under can also get a free shaved ice in a library cup from the Cool Bus. Ages 13 and older can test their skills and escape Mr. Boneyfiddle’s Traveling Riddle Room from 2-4pm.
