Make a Donation or Memorial

Make a Donation

If you are interested in donating books, just drop them into our Donation Case in the inner Lobby, located to the right of the Circulation Desk.  Donated books may be added to the Library’s collection or sold at the Friends of the Portage Library book sale. Book sale profits help the Friends support library programs, collections, and events. Unused or unsold donations will be recycled.

Memorial Books

If you would like to honor or memorialize a special person or event, you can do this through our book memorials program.  You can do this by either donating a specific book, or by donating the funds for staff to purchase a book in a specific subject category. If interested, please contact the library at 608-742-4959 for more information.
