Make a Donation or Memorial

Make a Donation

If you are interested in donating books, please bring them to the main circulation desk. The library has limited storage space and staff, so please don't bring in more than two boxes of items for donation per household per day.  Donated books may be added to the Library’s collection or sold at a Friends of the Library book sale. Be aware that it is at the discretion of the Adult Services Librarian whether donated materials will be included in the collection or given to the Friends of the Library. Book sale profits help the Friends of Portage Library 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 donating funds for staff to purchase a book in a specific subject category. If interested, please contact Adult Services Librarian at 608-742-4959, ext 170 for more information.
