Portland is a City of Readers! The Library is your partner to explore, research, and share the love of reading and learning. We love recommending what to read next, what’s popular and what’s lesser known, and what’s going on in the library and the community for our adult patrons.
The Portland Public Library has been selected by the Maine Humanities Council to offer “Let’s Talk About It,” a free reading and discussion group with copies of books available through the library. The series, “Exploring Human Boundaries: Literary Perspectives on Health Care Providers and Their Patients,” begins Tuesday, September 15, 2015. There will be 5 discussions in all through December 1st, 2015.
