Participating Businesses

Our library cardholders get extra benefits at businesses in the library district, just by showing their library card!

Once you have your library card we want you to put it to good use!
Your library card is your ticket to opportunity. What other card in your wallet gives you free access to books, music, movies and all sorts of other resources that can change your life – or just make it more fun?

And now as a card carrying member of the Portage Lake District Library, you can also use your card to get discounts at area businesses through our “Show Us Your Smart Card” program. These businesses are valued partners of the Portage Lake District Library*.

*Show your Portage Lake District Library card at one of these participating Library partner businesses and receive a discount on goods and services. Limit one discount, per person, per visit, per library card.

As a service to its member cardholders, the Portage Lake District Library has partnered with these businesses to extend discounts on goods/services.
