Portage Lake District Library in Houghton

The quote on the green wall says it all, by Thomas Jefferson, "I cannot live without books." Whether you read hard copies or e-books, our libraries are a national treasure. This one in Houghton sports an awesome view sitting on Lake Portage with large picture windows that probably make patrons want to linger and bask in the tranquility. This new facility is only 5 years old. The original library over on Huron Street was built in 1909 and is now occupied by the Carnegie Museum. The Portage Lake District Library serves Chassel, Portage and Houghton. Their library also offers Mango to their patrons free of charge.  It's an online language system that teaches conversation skills in many different languages.
