Currently, the Portage Public Library's front doors and children's department doors are OPEN for patron access. While we are not generally offering curbside pick-up service like we were when closed, special accomodations can be made if needed; please reach out to Circulation Services Supervisor Autumn with such requests (608-742-4959 ext. 204, or autumn@portagelibrary.us). Additionally, the Children's Department is offering children's-materials-only curbside service requests, called "Books to Go"; to take advantage of this, please contact the children's department directly at extension 211. 

Community Rooms are NOT available for booking; also, our study rooms are limited to two people at time while in use.

Everyone 5 years of age and older MUST properly wear a mask (up over the mouth and nose) at all times while in the building. We ask patrons to be thoughtful about consistently washing their hands, and to maintain proper 6-foot social distancing at all times with other patrons and library staff. All guidelines regarding mask usage, social distancing, and limited service are informed by recommendations by health experts. Violations of health guidelines at the library may result in restricted library service for repeat offenders. Any questions or concerns regarding our current hours and service can be routed to Library Director, Debbie Bird, at 608-742-4959 ext. 209, or dbird@portagelibrary.us. Thank you for doing your part in helping keep our staff members and community safe!
