About the Series » Summer Documentary Series

Portland Public Library is pleased to present the Summer Documentary Film Series with POV again this sumPOV Logomer.  Each summer we screen this award winning documentary series about a wide variety of subjects with our partners at POV weeks before the films air on PBS.  Often, we reach out to local organizations to co-present each film and host a discussion afterward.  The films are held on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm in the Rines Auditorium unless noted otherwise.
