We are proud to welcome, Zoë Alexis Scott, PPL’s Director of Advancement 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
