High School Yearbooks Online

Lake County Public Library has a huge collection of yearbooks from all of the high schools in our district - some dating back to 1908! We're finally putting our historic yearbooks online for anyone to flip through.

This is a great resource for genealogists, local historians, and anyone who's just feeling a little nostalgic. Each book is fully searchable. You can even download the books as PDFs and print any pages you want. Go ahead and take a look - you never know what you might find.


We have uploaded all of the yearbooks we have for these schools, though some may have been missing from our collection.

If your high school is in our district and you don't see your yearbook here, don't worry. We have a very large collection and are only posting links as we begin to upload. High schools from which we have not uploaded any scans yet are not mentioned here - but they will be soon.
