Seacoast Area Libraries

Welcome to Your Seacoast Area Libraries!

Seacoast Area Libraries (SAL) is an association of public libraries in the Greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire. From Portsmouth to Epping, Seabrook to Exeter, and everywhere in between, your hometown public library is ready to serve you! Of course, your libraries offer a great selection of books to borrow, but they also have new movies on DVD, downloadable e-books, e-readers, books on CD, music CDs, and free wi-fi. Some even have telescopes you can borrow. In addition, your local libraries are community centers offering a wide range of programs and events for all ages -- pre-K story-times, after-school teen programs, summer reading, book clubs, movie screenings, knitting circles, computer classes, genealogy workshops, and so much more to enrich your whole life. Come visit us. We're more than you expect!

Upcoming Events!

With Seacoast Storytellers, SAL will be hosting special events in our libraries throughout the month of January! Let us take you "beyond the binding" and experience tales, fables, music, and more, live and in person. Just lend us your ears; we'll provide the warm beverages and the stories. Be sure to tune into our Facebook page and your library's web sites for details.
