Portage County Memory Project

Are you interested in learning more about Garrettsville’s Opera House? Are you a Civil War enthusiast? Portage County District Library is pleased to announce that it has added additional items to its Portage County Memory Project. Documents, letters, and photographs from two area organizations, including the James A. Garfield Historical Society and the Aurora Historical Society, were scanned and added to the collection. Included in the collections are photographs of the Opera House and Civil War documents and letters. The items can be accessed by visiting www.portagelibrary.org and selecting About PCDL and then Portage County Memory Project. Using the digital preservation software CONTENTdm, items were scanned and then entered into the database. If you are a community-based organization interested in participating in this project, please call 330-527-5082 ext. 239 for more information. Portage County District Library is here to help you preserve your organization’s history and make it available online.

 Spring Storytime Registration Begins March 5

Portage County District Library’s spring storytime registration begins Monday, March 5 (check with your branch library for specific details).  Contact your branch library or register online at www.portagelibrary.org. It’s important to remember, as this date approaches, the positive impact that attending library story time has on the lives of young children.  Library story time attendance as a child often fosters a desire for lifelong learning, which, in turn, carries forward into school work.
