Why So Many Districts?
Each library district is a separate governmental unit, with its own Board of Trustees, administration, staff, collection, and services, designed to meet the needs of the community that it serves.
While all of the libraries have similarities, each district also offers a unique mix of materials, services, and programs.
Cooperative agreements exist among most Lake County library districts, allowing residents to utilize an even wider variety of resources (ie, residents of the Hammond Public Library district may obtain a card that can be used at Lake County Public Library). Learn more about statewide borrowing.
Library districts are arranged above in alphabetical order.
