Message from the Library Director


Our goal at the Portland district library is to provide educational and recreational materials and programming for our patrons of all ages in a friendly and efficient manner.  Our library website is a very important tool in helping our patrons understand the benefits and the procedures associated with the library.  We would like patrons to have easy and time saving methods for  awareness of upcoming library events, friends of the library meetings,  new library materials,  databases, and the ability to reserve library materials belonging to our library, as well as to  order materials from other libraries through the statewide interlibrary loan program, MelCat.

Our staff is eager to assist patrons with electronic information, the printed word, and audiovisual materials.  We welcome suggestions for purchase of library materials and ideas for library programs. Library cards are easy to obtain; the staff member can do this for the patron in a matter of a few minutes.

The library director is happy to discuss any portion of the library’s policies or procedures.  If the director is not available at a particular time, an appointment may be made at a time convenient for both parties.

We welcome you to our website and hope you will take a few minutes to look over the various sections. The more you know about the library, the more the library can do for you.  Thank you for your continual support of the library; we hope we have a regular place on your weekly calendar.
