Free, Full-Access Public Library Cards for Houghton Students

Posted on

The Portage Lake District Library (PLDL) is launching a new educational initiative in partnership with Houghton-Portage Township Schools (HPTS).The campaign, LEAP(Library Education and Access Program), aims to put a library card in the hand of every student enrolled in the school
district. The LEAP pilot project kicked off in 2019, when library cards were issued to all 4th grade students. Now, PLDL is working to ensure that all K-12 students have library cards ahead of the fall 2020 school year. A free, full access library card will be included in school materials at
the start of the school year.

For more information about LEAP and other library programs and resources, visit, or contact library staff at and 906-482-4570.
