Know Lake County: Lakeport Library
11/18/2017, starts 2:00 PM

LAKEPORT –Lake County Library’s Know Lake County lecture will turn the spotlight on the Lakeport Library itself on Nov. 18 with a tour of the library at 2:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Lake County Library. The library is located at 1425 N. High St. For more information call 263-8817.

The library has undergone renovations recently including new carpet, a new circulation desk and a rearranged layout to facilitate a 21st century library operation. The tour will show off the changes and introduce the public to the library’s many services and collections. The library’s services and programs supply both information and entertainment for adults, teens and children. The tour will cover the library’s digital services that include magazines, ebooks, music and video from an array of providers. Come learn about the library’s time machine and find out why there’s a tree growing in the library.

Lakeport Library, the headquarters of the Lake County Library system, administers public library services for Lakeport, Upper Lake, Clearlake and Middletown. The library on High Street opened in 1986 when the Carnegie Library in Library Park was outgrown. The Lake County Library now shares a catalog and circulation system with Sonoma and Mendocino Counties, allowing patrons to borrow items from anywhere in the tri-county area.

The Friends of the Lake County Library will be in the library to promote what they do for the library. The organization provides financial support for library programs and for new library materials.

County Librarian Christopher Veach says “Libraries are thriving in the information age. The programs and services provided by public libraries are designed to increase literacy levels and help people navigate the increasingly complex amounts of information available due to the internet and speed of  the publishing industry.“

            The monthly Know Lake County lectures feature speakers from a wide array of organizations and disciplines, each representing some aspect of Lake County.

            The Lake County Library is on the internet at http://library.lakecountyca.gov and Facebook at Facebook.com/LakeCountyLibrary
