Teen Health: the PPL Teen Library has what you need to answer all your health questions. Find community resources and referrals, or browse our collection of informational health books written specifically for teens. If you don’t feel like asking, our goal is to make it easy for you to find resources about even the most personal questions on your own.

Don’t go to Google! Find reliable, current, and factual health info online with MedlinePlus Teen Health or Teen Health & Wellness. Use these resources to answer your own questions or to research topics for school assignments. Teen staff also curate this list of library resources for health topics relevant to teens.

Join Maine Medical Center, The University of New England, and Portland Public Library for our fourth annual Community Health Fair! This event is free and open to all.
