We are proud to welcome, Zoë Alexis Scott, PPL’s Director of Advanc​ement and External Relations.

“Libraries are humanity. Libraries are civilization. The library has taught me about the commitment of sharing … information, time, space, resources, conversation. There is always magic. When I don’t know, don’t know who I am or what’s next or how to understand, I go to the library. Books find me, and I am comforted. It is all right, I find, to not know because then I can learn.”
– Zoë Alexis Scott, Portland Public Library

Zoe Alexis Scott is honored and excited to arrive at the Portland Public Library in her role as Director of Advancement and External Relations. With over twelve years in nonprofit leadership roles, she brings her passion for making a difference in the community through building relationships and fostering organizational growth. Zoe was the Executive Director of The Grand in Ellsworth, Executive Director of Seattle Public Theater, and most recently served as the Director of Development for the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.
