Welcome to the Teen Center at The Portland Public Library!

We have the most complete and diverse collection of new fiction for young adults and graphic novels in all of Portland. This is a place of learning and self-discovery. Our space is a place to read, watch, connect, learn, create and hang out with us – the Teen Team. We’ve got computers and wifi at all of our locations, as well as fun events, homework help, and programs just for you.  Ages 12-19 welcome!

After Hours

The next After Hours event will be on Friday, August 22 from 6-9.   We will be showing the movie Robocop (2014) in the Rines Auditorium. You can also eat pizza, play videogames and hang out with your neighbors at the library!  Please sign up with the librarian.  Space is limited.

The Teen Center at the Portland Public Library has video games!  If you have a library card, you can reserve a time to play on our Playstation 4 or XBOX 360.  We have two large screen TVs.  Gaming times can be reserved for one hour per patron, between the times of 1pm and 5pm. Monday through Saturday.  We also have a large collection of Nintendo 3DS and Wii games to check out as well.

The library also occasionally shows live soccer matches in our lounge.
