Collection Information

Video Games

We work hard at the Portage Public Library to offer a modern, relevant collection that satisfies community interest. In line with this, we've curated a rather substantial video game collection spanning the past 10 years of gaming. We will keep filling in the backlog of "gaming greats", and continue to add what is new and popular. We've tried to build a collection that appeals to a diverse age range and taste. More information about our video game collection can be found below. If you would like to suggest any particular games, please contact Chris at, or if you'd like to speak with someone about a particular item in the collection please contact our Interim Library Director Susan at

A bit of specific information about our video game collection:

• The cases on the shelves are empty. To check out a game, bring the case up to the front desk. The games themselves will be put into their case upon checkout.

• Video games have a 7 day loan period. Just like DVDs, patrons can renew games once on LINKCat (as long as they are not on hold for someone else).

• A maximum of 5 Portage Public Library video games are allowed to be checked out to an individual's account at one time; however, there is not a limit on video games from other libraries checked out to your account.

Note: In accordance with the American Library Association's Access for Children and Young Adults to Nonprint Materials (click the link to view), the Portage Public Library is not responsible for restricting what content is checked out to child and teen patrons due to their age.

More information about the rest of our collection is still to come, as this page is under construction. We appreciate your patience and understanding!
