Portland Public Library collects government RESOURCE LINKS and receives government documents as part of the Federal Depository Library Program (since 1884). Our trained staff will help you find the government information you need (demographics, statistics, legal, politics, military, forms, etc.) whether around opportunities for civic engagement, for government services application forms, or for immigration support. PPL’s Government Documents are managed by the Business and Government Team, which manages the Library collections, online resources, and programming on government-related topics as well as business-related topics (management, economics, financial literacy) and careers & jobs information.
“A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy or both.“
– James Madison
