PLDL and the Hancock Library are open for limited, in-person services with regular hours.

Our 2020 Summer Reading Program ended on September 5.

This year, we’re pairing your favorite Summer Reading Program with local COVID-19 relief efforts in collaboration with the Portage Health Foundation.

Read for Relief seeks to engage residents in summer reading while also helping our local non-profit community heal from the COVID-19 pandemic. If our community reading goal of 20,000 hours is met by the end of the program, funding from the Portage Health Foundation will be awarded to three area non-profits in need.

As part of Read for Relief, PLDL has kicked-off a fundraising campaign that asks donors to help raise $15,000 to support PLDL and the Hancock School Public Library with anticipated revenue losses tied to the pandemic. The Portage Health Foundation will match these contributions, dollar for dollar, up to $15,000, to be distributed to three selected non-profits – U.P. Kids, Dial Help, and the Keweenaw Family Resource Center.
