About the Room Rentals

Thanks for your interest in booking a meeting room space at Portland Public Library.  Meeting Rooms are currently not available as we transition to a new system. We anticipate that meeting rooms can be available to outside groups starting in January, 2024.

We do have two small soundproof cubicle “pods” in our lower level that can fit up to 4 people. If that suits your needs, please call the reference desk at 207-871-1700 ext725 to find out more information about availability.

Below are some local alternatives to Portland Public Library for room rentals while our spaces are on hold – please note that they are not affiliated with or endorsed by PPL:

The following are for-profit companies offering “Day Passes” per person and/or conference/meeting room booking for Coworking Spaces:

CoworkHERS – https://www.coworkhers.com

Cloudport – https://cloudportme.com

ThinkTank – https://www.thinktankcoworking.com


Please do check back in on our website in early November for updates on the status of our meeting room availability.

Our apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for thinking of your library. For any additional questions, please call 207-871-1700 x755.
