Westlake Porter Public Library staff members think their customers are out of this world. That’s why they’re treating them during Customer Appreciation Week, October 5-11. In addition to special space-themed programs for all ages, the library will thank customers for their support and usage with giveaways, cookies, an opportunity to get your photo taken with an “astronaut” and discounts at Portables (show your library card at the Friends-operated gift shop on October 8-10 to get yours!).
Planned programs include:
