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.
Read Burbank Branch’s bi-monthly column in the Deering Squirrel neighborhood newspaper!
