About the Series » Summer Documentary Series
Portland Public Library is pleased to present the Summer Documentary Film Series with POV again this summer. 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.
