Portsmouth Central Library We have a responsibility to the residents of Portsmouth to support their education, whether they are children learning at school or adults improving their skills. We are at the heart of education in Portsmouth, supporting the city’s many schools, and helping parents and children to get the most out of time in the classroom. It’s never too late for anyone to learn either for a career or for fun.
