PPL Teen Snack Chats

two overlapping blue text bubbles, one containing an image of a granola barOur goal is to bring topical and relevant conversations directly to the young people who use our library. We invite teens to share a snack and a conversation with a diverse array of passionate professionals working in the Portland community. Topics can be hyper-local all the way to global and universal — you never know where the conversation will take us. Past Snack Chat topics include “Bystander Intervention”, “Heroin”, “Dating Violence”, and “Being Muslim in America”.

PPL Teen Snack Chats will resume in September for the 2018/2019 school year. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Teen Library at (207) 871-1700 x773, or email
