Library News

Portland District Library is looking to ignite your love of reading and all things library with this year’s Summer Reading Program: Adventure Begins At Your Library! Our all-ages program will run for a total of 8 weeks from June 7 until August 2. Use PDL’s virtual reading tracker, Beanstack, or log time read by picking up a passport tracker; both options are available for youth and adult patrons. Spend time reading, earn level prizes (new for adults this year!), and enter to win one of our many grand prize packs. Registration bega at our kickoff on June 7 and will continue throughout the entire summer program!


We’re surrounded every day by practical, functional paper, so it’s about time to create something beautiful.  We’ll make marbleized paper out of old magazines, handcraft paper from old scraps, and more.  It will be messy and smelly, so (weather permitting) we’ll be outside on June 24 at 6:00 p.m.  Registration is required, ages 16 and up.


For the Love of Food

Our food adventures continue when “For the Love of Food” takes on summertime dishes.  Our theme for June is cold, in July we will explore no-bake desserts and in August we will celebrate garden bounty.   Share your kitchen creations with us the fourth Wednesday of each month starting June 26 at 6:00 p.m.  Don't forget your recipe!

Charcuterie 101

Are you bored by your appetizers, but too intimidated to try a fancy charcuterie tray?  Laurel Day (@dosomethinglady) will be at the library on July 2 at 6:00 p.m. with tips and tricks (and nibbles!) to take the trauma out of creating your own charcuterie board.  She will do a step-by-step demonstration of making a festive July 4th board, and at the end guests sample the most popular items (meats and cheeses) and can eat the completed platter as well.  Registration is required, ages 16 and up.
