Portsmouth History Center

You may have noticed a special section of the library designated as the PORTSMOUTH HISTORY CENTER. It was made possible by the generous donations and sponsorships of Portsmouth’s 375th celebration in 2013. Visit the associated Portsmouth History Center web site where we are starting to build a digital archive of Portsmouth documents and artifacts at www.portsmouthhistorycenter.org. We will continue to build this digital archive of history items. If any citizen has special historical documents or other artifacts that they are worthy of digital preservation they should contact the library at 401-683-9457 or visit the library for more information on how to have them digitally preserved. The company who does the digitization, The Digital Ark Corporation, are experts at handling old and fragile documents. They are fully insured and very capable of handling your historic items.
