Do you need a library card?
We are SO excited to announce that the Portneuf Library Board of Trustees approved a phased reopening plan for our library. Beginning Wednesday 5/27/2020 we will again accept item returns to our outdoor book drops. We will then open the library for limited hours and services beginning June 1st, 2020. We cannot wait to see our patrons again!
Stay tuned to our Facebook, Instagram, and website for updated information!
