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). With open hours Tuesdays through Saturdays, Burbank consistently ranks as one of the busiest public library locations in Maine.
See our Holiday Schedule for planned closings.
All Ages/Family Lego Club
Legos are not just toys, they are also STEM tools that allow people to invent, collaborate, engineer and build. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
Burbank’s Lego Club meets every Thursday from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm
We will provide weekly themes and lots of Lego pieces and bases…you bring the creativity! This program is free and open to everyone.
