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.

Our Book of the Week project is created by Reader’s Advisory staff and is focused on sharing one great book from the library’s collections each week. The book might be fiction or nonfiction, a new title or an older gem from the stacks. You can see a photo of each new book of the week and a list of the books in our library catalog here.
