Library Receives $100,000 Gift from Friends


Friends and New Storytime area

The Friends of Westlake Porter Public Library announced it gave over $100,000 to the library in 2015. The organization’s members raised the funds through used book sales, the library gift shop, a trees & wreaths silent auction, and an annual book sale. The group also donated thousands of volunteer hours throughout the year.

Westlake Porter Public Library used a majority of the gift for building renovations and updates in 2015-2016. The remaining funds went towards providing all of the library’s programming, such as Science Week, National Library Week, and the adult & youth Summer Reading programs.
