About Us

Friends of the Library

Friends of Lake County Library raise money that enables our library to move from good to great-- providing the resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, support for children's summer reading and special events throughout the year.

The work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that our library is the cornerstone of the community providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present.

Members of the Friends understand the critical importance of well funded libraries and advocate to ensure that our library gets the resources it needs to provide a wide variety of services to all ages including access to print and electronic materials, along with expert assistance in research, readers' advisory, and children's services.

The Friends' time and commitment to the library set an example for all in how volunteerism leads to positive civic engagement and the betterment of our community.
