  • The Future of Europe
  • Trade and Politics
  • Conflict in the South China Sea
  • Saudi Arabia in Transition
  • U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum

Microplastics in NH:  What we've learned in 3 years of a monitoring project.

Plastic pollution is pervasive on our beaches and in our waterways, and it can have devasting effects on marine life. Many research and education efforts are focusing on microplastics-tiny plastics 1-5 mm in size.  For the past three years, Blue Ocean Society and New Hampshire Sea Grant have studied microplastics on our beaches.  Learn about the results of our study and how you can help.

First Sunday:
Live Guitar Performances
at Portsmouth Public Library & Portsmouth Music and Arts Center
Sundays, 3 PM

Mark your calendars for the start of a series presented by the library and Portsmouth Music and Arts Center (PMAC) in association with the Boston Classical Guitar Society. This series of seven free concerts will be held at 3 PM on the first Sunday of the month (except September), alternating locations between the Levenson Room at the Portsmouth Public Library and the Haas Family Gallery and Recital Hall at PMAC. Drawing from a rich selection of guitar talent from both New Hampshire and the greater Boston area, the series of recitals will highlight the versatility and range of the guitar from classical to jazz to acoustic.

This series is produced and curated by Mitch Shuldman, Librarian Emeritus from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Mitch is himself, a classical guitarist and was the host of a classical guitar radio show [Excursions] that aired on NHPR during its early years (1981-84). He is a former member and Chair of the Portsmouth School Board and currently sings with Portsmouth Pro Musica and performs with Noteworthy, a classical flute and guitar duo.

March 13: Family Life by Akhil Sharma

The Mishras come to America in the late-1970s, the father first, in the wake of new U.S. immigration laws and the Indian Emergency, when the narrator, Ajay, is eight, and his brother Birju is 12. There are lovely scenes of their life in Delhi before they leave, the mother making wicks from the cotton in pill bottles, the parade of neighbors when their plane tickets to America arrive.

Documentary: After Spring
Monday March 13 | 6:30 PM

2016. 101 minutes.

With the Syrian conflict now in its sixth year, millions of people continue to be displaced. AFTER SPRING is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees. With no end in sight for the conflict or this refugee crisis, everyone must decide if they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent.

The showing of this DVD is inspired by the library's Great Decisions discussion group which makes use of materials provided by the Foreign Policy Association

March 13: Family Life by Akhil Sharma

The Mishras come to America in the late-1970s, the father first, in the wake of new U.S. immigration laws and the Indian Emergency, when the narrator, Ajay, is eight, and his brother Birju is 12. There are lovely scenes of their life in Delhi before they leave, the mother making wicks from the cotton in pill bottles, the parade of neighbors when their plane tickets to America arrive.

Tracing Your Italian Ancestors with Marcia Melnyk
Sunday March 19 | 2-4 PM | Levenson Meeting Room

Marcia Iannizzi Melnyk will join us again to share her many years of experience with Italian family research.  You might remember that back in April 2016 she wowed us about getting our research really organized in Genealogy 101!  In this program she will step us through the basics of Italian research, what to look for regarding immigration and naturalization records, Italian Civil records, and locating online resources.  Come with your questions and family names!

Marcia is a well-known professional genealogist who has taught, and written about, many genealogical topics for 25 years, is a former reference librarian for the New England Historic Genealogical Society where she created and taught Genealogy 101, and was editor of The Genealogist’s Handbook for New England Research, 4th edition. 

Most recently, she published a professional guide called Tracing Your Italian Ancestors.  She is a volunteer and speaker for NARA, NE and is President of the Italian Genealogical Society of America.   Whether you are beginning or continuing your genealogical research, Ms. Melnyk will certainly provide tips and guidance for finding the familial Italian records you may be after.

These workshops, presented by the library’s Special Collections staff and members of the Ranger Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), are free, open to the public, and appropriate for all levels of interest and experience.

March 21 – Tattoos on the Heart by Greg Boyle

In this artful, disquieting, yet surprisingly jubilant memoir, Jesuit priest Boyle recounts his two decades of working with “homies” in Los Angeles County, which contains 1,100 gangs with nearly 86,000 members. Boyle’s Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention program in the country, offering job training, tattoo removal, and employment to members of enemy gangs.

March 29 – Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson

Set in an unnamed Arab emirate, Wilson’s intriguing, colorful first novel centers on a callow Arab-Indian computer hacker who calls himself “Alif,” the first letter of the Arabic alphabet…. Wilson (The Butterfly Mosque, a memoir) provocatively juxtaposes ancient Arab lore and equally esoteric computer theory, highlighting the many facets of the East-West conflict.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Thursday March 30 | 6:30 PM

2016. Rated PG-13. 133 minutes.

It opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper koala, presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some, might even say delusional-optimist, who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition.

First Sunday:
Live Guitar Performances
at Portsmouth Public Library & Portsmouth Music and Arts Center
Sundays, 3 PM

This series is presented by the library and Portsmouth Music and Arts Center (PMAC) in association with the Boston Classical Guitar Society. This series of seven free concerts will be held at 3 PM on the first Sunday of the month (except September), alternating locations between the Levenson Room at the Portsmouth Public Library and the Haas Family Gallery and Recital Hall at PMAC. Drawing from a rich selection of guitar talent from both New Hampshire and the greater Boston area, the series of recitals will highlight the versatility and range of the guitar from classical to jazz to acoustic.

This series is produced and curated by Mitch Shuldman, Librarian Emeritus from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Mitch is himself, a classical guitarist and was the host of a classical guitar radio show [Excursions] that aired on NHPR during its early years (1981-84). He is a former member and Chair of the Portsmouth School Board and currently sings with Portsmouth Pro Musica and performs with Noteworthy, a classical flute and guitar duo.

April 2 @ PMAC
David Surette, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin

May 31 – Grass by Sheri Tepper

Generations in the future, when humanity has spread to other planets and Earth is ruled by Sanctity, a dour, coercive religion that looks to resurrection of the body by storing cell samples of its communicants, a plague is threatening to wipe out mankind. The only planet that seems to be spared is Grass… it was settled by families of European nobility who live on vast estancias and indulge in the ancient sport of fox hunting--although the horses, hounds and foxes aren't what they what they appear to be.
