If you want help with your studies, to learn a new skill, or just want to relax with a good book, Portsmouth libraries are the places to go. Not all nine libraries in the city stock everything, but you can request items from other libraries and we’ll send them to your nearest branch.

Alternatively, download e-books, audiobooks, magazines and music onto your home computer using your library card number and PIN.

If you’re not sure what to read next, we’ve even got books and websites to help you choose. The table below gives you some idea of what’s available.
