Portsmouth Free Public Library’s annual Touch-a-Truck event is almost here! Touch-a-Truck will give the community’s children (and adults) a chance to get up close and personal with all kinds of big and fascinating vehicles. From a school bus to a police car, from a race car to a fire truck, everyone will have the opportunity to see, touch, blow horns, and learn about dozens of cool vehicles. Giant trucks and equipment volunteered by municipal and commercial organizations will be on display. The event will take place on Saturday, May 7 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Glen Park.
Admission charge is $3 per person for the day. In addition to the vehicle display, there will be various activities for the children including karate and robotics demonstrations. Food will be available for purchase from the Portsmouth Lions Club. Proceeds from the event will go toward Library purchases.
Monday - Thursday: 9 AM to 8 PM
Friday - Saturday: 9 AM to 5 PM
Sunday: Closed for Mother's Day
Bright Shiny Faces: A Retrospective Look at Portsmouth Schools of Old is a collection from the Portsmouth Historical Society. Written records indicate that as early as 1716 the freeman in the town of Portsmouth, “…having considered how excellent an ornament learning is to mankind,” made an appropriation for building a schoolhouse. This was no doubt the first schoolhouse constructed at town expense. The collection of photographs and memorobilia is on display at the Library.
Kermin Liu, Esq., volunteer tutor, will be at the Library every Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:00 PM to help students with free homework help in arithmetic (including decimals and fractions), pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus.
