Parents & Kids
Welcome to Portage District Library’s website for children and parents. Our goal is to create an environment that emphasizes both the importance and the fun of reading and learning! We do this through collections, technology, and programs that educate and entertain the children of our community.
Listen or Read
We offer books in many formats. You can always check out good reads in book form, but if you want to try something else, we have many options! Check out a book on CD, read a book online (Tumblebooks), or download a digital audio book through our website via your home internet connection!
Children can play educational and entertaining games on our Early Literacy Computers or PS2 stations when they visit the library. We also provide board games for low-tech fun!
Learn and Play
Our preschool room offers little ones many ways to learn through play using manipulatives, puzzles, and dramatic play.
Bring Home a Discovery Pack
We offer Discovery Packs, perfect for a child with a particular interest. Each kit contains books, puzzles, games, or activities related to a theme. The themes cover many interests from Dora the Explorer to magic tricks. To see our list of Discovery Packs and to reserve one for yourself, click here.
