According to the Lake County Public Library‘s website, the Friends of Library raise money that enables the library to move from good to great, providing the resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, the children’s summer reading program and special events throughout the year. 

The work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that the 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 the 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 the community. For more information visit their website: LINK.
