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.
Teachers: we are happy to arrange library tours and orientations for middle or high school aged students! We kindly request that tours be arranged with a minimum of two weeks advance notice in order to ensure adequate staffing for your visit. To arrange a tour, please contact Teen Team Leader, Kelley Blue.

The Portland Public Teen Library at Monument Square is home to a new exhibit featuring stories written by twelve Deering High School students from Iraq, Angola, Vietnam, Somalia, Albania, Afghanistan, Burundi, Haiti, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Against a backdrop of new homes, schools, airports, and embassies, each writer explores the complex emotions that arise when faced with a new situation.
Greater Portland’s only writing group dedicated to journal and memoir writing! Journalists will be encouraged to produce creative, reflective writing through the use of autobiographic and historic elements in PPL’s collections: this includes memoirs, archives, journalism, letter correspondence, and the history of writing in material culture.
