Join us Mondays February 23 - March 30 for a free six week mindfulness course. Everyone is welcome. No previous experience necessary.

Learn simple mindfulness techniques to:

· Quiet the mind

· Reduce stress

Research has shown that mindfulness  lowers stress levels, increases emotional regulation and has positive effects on blood pressure, hormone levels and even our DNA.

Instructor Liz Korabek-Emerson teaches theater, performance, mindfulness and skillful compassion. She has trained at the Kripalu Center and is a long time meditator.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.”

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.”

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' y

Monday April 13 | Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain

"In this heart-wrenching historical fiction, prolific author Chamberlain focuses on a time in North Carolina’s history that most people would rather forget. It’s 1960, and Jane is a 21-year-old newlywed who’s just accepted a job as a social worker, though her husband, Robert, would rather she stay home like the other country club wives."

Monday May 11 | Manuscript found in Accra by Paulo Coelho

"It is Jerusalem, the year 1099, and as French soldiers prepare to invade, a group gathers around a trite sage known as “the Copt.” The topics broached are wide-ranging..."

June 8  | The Wives of Los Alamos by Tarashea Nesbit

"First-time novelist Nesbit chronicles the lives of a disparate group of women who forge a new community together after relocating to the desert of New Mexico during World War II. The collective “we” that serves as the book’s protagonist only knows that the women’s physicist husbands are working day and night on a secret government project."

The Portsmouth Public Library is proud to present a rockin' music series for Spring 2015, and all concerts are free of charge. Whether you like the blues, jazz, Celtic, Irish, reggae, folk or anything other kind of music, there’s something for you at PPL! All concerts will take place in the Levenson Room, but come early to make sure you get a seat!

Join us on April 15 for a special Reggae on Tax Day with Jah Spirit! Since 1984, Jah Spirit’s music has sent a message of peace and freedom while celebrating social consciousness and universality among all peoples.

Under the dynamic leadership of writer, composer, singer Ras Michael I, the group blends an African-Reggae beat with elements of calypso jazz, blues and rock. Ras Michael, a native of Trinidad, captivates his audiences with spellbinding lyrics and a stage presence that has been described as charismatic, highly energetic and spirited. Interaction between the audience and the musicians is a recognized trademark of Jah Spirit.

The librarians 'book talk' each book by briefly highlighting basic plot lines, major characters and geographic locations.  Each talk will have a different theme or discuss a different genre.  Selections from each book are read aloud.  We would love to hear what your favorite authors are and we invite your suggestions for future book talks. Please join us for an informal conversation about books!

Learn how to cultivate happiness, increase resilience and positivity in times of stress, and re-discover aspects of self through this creative empowerment workshop. Through the use of a variety of arts you will explore ways to revive and improve self-care/self-love, increase wellbeing, and form connections with self and others.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to art and expressive therapy; a brief psycho education on neurology and how our brains respond to stress and ways to decrease stress and increase self-care through a variety of proven approaches. Following the education lecture, small and large groups will establish a connection with others through art creation, movement, writing, verbal and non –verbal processing. The workshop will end with a reflection and closure process. All participants will depart with a self-made creation.

Instructor Julie Ligon is an art therapist and mental health counselor clinician who will complete her Masters degree from Lesley University in May 2015.  She has a background in behavioral science and fine art from the Maine College of art in Portland Maine.  She has experience working with a variety of art mediums such as sculpture, painting, drawing, mix-media, and photography.  She is native to the area, born and raised in New Hampshire and is a world traveler.  She has been to Nepal twice and lived in India for three months working with children in a small Tamil village school and in a HIV children’s home teaching the therapeutic arts.  She is an experienced meditator, having participated in mindfulness since childhood. She teaches resiliency, acceptance commitment therapy, positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, neurology, self-care, mindfulness, and a theory she is currently developing at Harvard’s McLean Southeast adult psychiatric hospital.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.”

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.”

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' y

Monday April 13 | Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain

"In this heart-wrenching historical fiction, prolific author Chamberlain focuses on a time in North Carolina’s history that most people would rather forget. It’s 1960, and Jane is a 21-year-old newlywed who’s just accepted a job as a social worker, though her husband, Robert, would rather she stay home like the other country club wives."

Monday May 11 | Manuscript found in Accra by Paulo Coelho

"It is Jerusalem, the year 1099, and as French soldiers prepare to invade, a group gathers around a trite sage known as “the Copt.” The topics broached are wide-ranging..."

June 8  | The Wives of Los Alamos by Tarashea Nesbit

"First-time novelist Nesbit chronicles the lives of a disparate group of women who forge a new community together after relocating to the desert of New Mexico during World War II. The collective “we” that serves as the book’s protagonist only knows that the women’s physicist husbands are working day and night on a secret government project."

Librarians from the Portsmouth Public Library bring books (regular and large print), books on CD and sometimes films from the library collection to share.  All of the items we bring from the library may be checked out.

The librarians 'book talk' each book by briefly highlighting basic plot lines, major characters and geographic locations.  Each talk will have a different theme or discuss a different genre.  Selections from each book are read aloud.  We would love to hear what your favorite authors are and we invite your suggestions for future book talks. Please join us for an informal conversation about books!

Monthly meeting of the Portsmouth Public Library Fiction Book Club. All welcome! Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out with your PPL card.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.”

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.”

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' y

Monday April 13 | Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain

"In this heart-wrenching historical fiction, prolific author Chamberlain focuses on a time in North Carolina’s history that most people would rather forget. It’s 1960, and Jane is a 21-year-old newlywed who’s just accepted a job as a social worker, though her husband, Robert, would rather she stay home like the other country club wives."

Monday May 11 | Manuscript found in Accra by Paulo Coelho

"It is Jerusalem, the year 1099, and as French soldiers prepare to invade, a group gathers around a trite sage known as “the Copt.” The topics broached are wide-ranging..."

June 8  | The Wives of Los Alamos by Tarashea Nesbit

"First-time novelist Nesbit chronicles the lives of a disparate group of women who forge a new community together after relocating to the desert of New Mexico during World War II. The collective “we” that serves as the book’s protagonist only knows that the women’s physicist husbands are working day and night on a secret government project."
