Welcome to the Teen Center at The Portland Public Library!
This is a place of learning and self-discovery. Our space is a place to read, watch, study, game, connect, learn, and create. We’ve got an amazing and diverse collection of materials for teens, including the latest fiction, informational books, magazines, movies, and even video games. All this plus computers, WiFi, and the best study spaces in the entire library (keep that a secret!). Ages 12-19 are welcome!
There’s always a friendly staff member here to help you find your next favorite book or to answer your most burning questions. Come hang out with us – the Teen Team, or follow us on Twitter @ppl_teen.

Portland Public Library is pleased to bring back certified college planner Gary Canter for a series of free workshops on the college planning process.
Your digital presence is more than just what you choose to share on social media and what you type in your email account– it impacts your reputation, your privacy, and almost every aspect of your personal, social, and professional life today. Librarians are some of the oldest guardians of privacy, and we’re excited to help the community tackle this challenging digital landscape. Please join us for programs and workshops on these topics.

Includes car practice tests, motorcycle practice tests, CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) practice tests, online driver’s manuals (car, motorcycle, CDL) and an FAQ section with detailed answers to 100+ DMV-related questions.
Science touches nearly everything, so we’ve put together the best STEM books in our collection. Adults love these titles, too!
