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
Calling all hackers! Join us at Portland Public Library on Saturday, September 12th at 9am to be part of creating something awesome for our city!
PPL is holding a one day hackathon where teams will work together to create an online portal for civic engagement and civil discourse; a place where citizens can gather virtually to discuss issues important to them and our community. This online portal will provide an opportunity to share opinions, information, community initiatives, volunteer prospects and more.
Teams will have ten hours to create an online platform. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best solutions. Food and caffeine will be provided for all registered participants.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED - upon confirmation of registration, you will receive a page of expected deliverables.
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has provided PPL with a collection of resources to help immigrants and refugees prepare for their next steps in the immigration process; including items that folks can keep for their private library or to share with friends. Stay tuned as Immigration Officers will conduct workshops at the Library, several times per year, to answer questions.
Portland Public Library invites the Greater Portland community to enhance our public life by choosing civility! Join us as we engage in lively conversation on a variety of topics important to our community.
