The Library and Staff

Portage District Library is supported by a millage paid by tax payers in the City of Portage and Portage Public School District. The Library is governed by an elected board and run by nearly fifty full and part-time employees. They are assisted by many volunteers from the community. If you are interested in getting involved at the library, you can call us at (269) 329-4544 or contact us via e-mail
