Friends of the Library to Host Book Sale

The Friends of the Porter County Public Library System was established in 1985 and have raised over $750,000 to date for the five libraries in the system, Hebron, Kouts, Portage, South Haven and Valparaiso. The Friends have been supportive of the System by raising money for library materials, equipment and offering support for specific projects. Money raised helps to provide funding for special programming including the Summer Reading Club and Adult Reading Programs.

Some of the volunteering opportunities include: offering assistance at programs, working library book sales and working the Friends' Book Sale rooms in Portage and Valparaiso. Currently there are over 600 Friends members. For information on volunteering please contact Cheryl Oestreich at This email address is being protected from spambots.
