Hancock school public library

As of November 1, 2018, the Hancock School Public Library is operated by the Portage Lake District Library (PLDL). For a period of three years, PLDL will staff the Hancock library and provide books and other materials, access to library databases, interlibrary loans that enable patrons to borrow books from other libraries, and programming.

The agreement does not give Hancock residents access to the main library in Houghton. They will still have to purchase out-of-district memberships to make full use of the PLDL in Houghton.

You can read more details about the partnership between PLDL and the Hancock School Public Library in our press release.
