 History & Mission Statement

 

The Portage Public Library has been available for the use of the community for over 80 years.  We provide a variety of resources and services such as internet access, children’s story time, research materials, interlibrary borrowing, copying/printing/faxing, book discussion groups, meeting rooms, audio books, wi-fi, as well as books of every shape, size, and topic.  The Library is quick to provide the newest technology such as selections for e-readers.  We promote opportunities for learning, self improvement, and self expression.     

Funding for the Library comes from state funding, county funding share, local government donations, and from the generous donations of our communities’ citizens.

The mission of the Portage Public Library is to provide an environment where lifelong habits of learning, self-improvement, and self expression are encouraged and where patrons can meet their educational, informational, and recreational needs.  The Library provides equal opportunity access to information, high quality book and multimedia materials, programs, exhibits, and online resources to meet the needs of our diverse community and to improve the quality of life.   The Library responds to the needs of users by providing an inviting building, well organized and up-to-date collections, friendly professional service, well trained staff, and free or low cost services to all citizens.
