Meet Andrew Wallace: PPL Board Trustee

“When I was old enough to ride my bike across the bridge from South Portland, Portland Public Library became a frequent destination. I loved the energy, the bustle, and the massive and varied collection of books and magazines (and a few comic books). As a busy adult, I am embarrassed to admit I visited less often, but I am grateful for the curiosity and excitement of my own children which renewed my interest in this place – the heart of our amazing city. Each time I visit any of the libraries I am impressed by the breadth of services, events, and resources PPL has to offer any and all comers. There is no better place to pursue your individual interests, to join in a shared exploration of myriad topics, or to just spend an hour observing the joy of curious children and adults alike.”

Andrew Wallace is a former teacher-librarian and current school administrator in South Portland. Andrew is a leader of the librarians’ network of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and represents Maine on the National Center for Educational Statistics.

He is honored to be a trustee of the Portland Public Library, and he still loves comic books.
