Donate Time:

The first Friday of each month, we need six volunteers for 1.5 hour shifts for the First Friday Art Walk. Friends of PPL sponsors the Portland Public Library's participation in the First Friday Art Walk, which has proven to be a very popular and successful event. We provide light hors d'oeuvres and drinks to Art Walkers. Volunteers work with library staff to ensure the food is put out, help answer questions, recruit new Friends members, and enjoy the event! The first shift will be 5:00 - 6:30 pm and the second 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Fun and easy! Please email us at by clicking here and let us know if you are available for the first or second shift for any First Friday or if you would like to learn other ways you can help out. Thank you!
