Portage County District Library celebrated National Library Week by recognizing the hard work and dedication of its many Friends of the Library and community volunteers. During the week, the community was reminded of what valuable assets they are to Portage County District Library. In addition to the recognition, tables were set up to display Friends of the Library membership applications.
It was “Customer Appreciation Day” on Monday, April 9, and customers were treated to light refreshments. This was a time for Portage County District Library to show its appreciation for customers. As the theme this year was You Belong @ the Library, Portage County District Library demonstrated this sentiment by offering a heartfelt thanks to its customers, Friends of the Library groups, and community volunteers. Although National Library Week comes by only once a year, the Portage County District Library is here for you everyday.
