Teen Kits for Fall: We will be handing out "Take and Make" kits throughout the fall months...check us out on Instagram or on our Teen Services at the Portage Public Library Facebook event page! We created a "Warrior Pride Tied Fleece Blanket" kit, "Caramel Apple Bar" kit, "Pumpkin String Art" kit, "Boo Bark" kit, "Decorative Magnets" kit, and "Spice Mug Cake" kit! These are *free* to students in grades 6-12 and generously funded by the Friends of the Portage Public Library.

  • Our library is open with limited hours! Students in grades 6-12 are welcome in the Teen Area. We have two laptops available and a comfortable sitting area for studying or socializing (masks and social distancing are required).

The photographs/videos may appear on the library's website and social media, in the news paper, or other publications without compensation.
