5-Year Library Strategic Plan

In 2021, the Portage Public Library completed a comprehesive 5-year strategic plan with thorough input from local business leaders, educators, city employees, and community members. The strategic plan outlines for our library both short-term and long-term service goals, so we may best meet the needs of our community -- both in the present and as we look to the future. We hope that this strategic plan speaks to your vision of the library as much as it does ours.


The Portage Public Library serves and supports the community through open access to resources, partnerships, and technology.


The Portage Public Library aspires to be community's social and learning hub, improving the quality of life for everyone.
