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 5:30 PM to help students with free homework help in arithmetic (including decimals and fractions), pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. Also, get help in how to study for other subjects such as history, science, English, etc. Kermin has been practicing law for 14 years and also has a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Please call the Library at 683-9457 to sign up.
