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.

PPL has partnered with Driving-Tests.org to bring you Maine DMV practice tests online. It’s easy and free! 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!
