About the Burbank Branch
Burbank Branch is directly across the street from Deering High School in the heart of Portland’s vibrant Deering neighborhood. It was founded in 1940 and moved to its present location in a beautiful repurposed family home in 1995. Despite its small size (2,900 square feet), Burbank lends over 250,000 items annually (over 1/4th of the PPL system’s circulation) and consistently ranks as one of the busiest public library locations in Maine. Portlanders appreciate Burbank’s friendly atmosphere and family focus.
Portland Public Library & Portland Public Schools are excited to announce this year’s joint summer reading program I ♥ Reading in Portland: Pedal Through the Pages. The program runs for 8 weeks & sign up will begin the week of June 18th. Younger children can participate in Stroll Through Summer Reading, a gameboard filled with early literacy activities such as talking, singing, reading, writing, & playing.
In addition to other great prizes, participants this year have the chance to win a bicycle – thanks to Portland’s Triangle Lodge & Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation! There will be a variety of educational & entertaining programs at different Portland Public Library locations throughout the city. Click here for more information.
