About the Series » PPL Teen Snack Chats

Teen Snack Chat logo

Our goal is to bring topical and relevant conversations directly to the young people who use our library. We invite teens to share a snack and a conversation with a diverse array of passionate professionals working in the Portland community. Topics can be hyper-local all the way to global and universal — you never know where the conversation will take us. Past Snack Chat topics include “Bystander Intervention”, “Opioid Addiction,” “Dating Violence,” and “Understanding STIs.”

If you have any questions about this program or are a community partner interested in presenting, please contact the Teen Library at (207) 871-1700 x773, or email
