Today (August 9th) is National Book Lover’s Day! Why not celebrate by heading down to Lake County Public Library and check out some books? If you do not have a library card, getting one is easy- all you need to bring is a photo I.D. and proof of local residency! Your library card will allow you to check out books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks at the library, but there is more you can do online! Check out e-books, audiobooks, videos, and music through OverDrive! Research on the EBSCO databases! Take free classes through Universal Class! Look up car repair at the Chilton Library! You can also view your Library Account online! Links can be found on the Lake County Public Library website. If you have any questions or need assistance the library staff is happy to help by phone (719-486-0569) or in person (1115 Harrison Avenue).
