National Library week is happening from April 23 through April 29. All 16 Lake County Libraries and the Lake County Animal Shelter have teamed up to promote the event.
The Lake County Library System is encouraging everyone to visit their local library and become familiar with all the great resources the library system has to offer. For Library Week only, Lake County Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for all guests who visit the shelter with their library card. Residents and visitors who have yet to pick up a library card from a local branch still have time – library visitors only need to provide a state ID listing their Lake County address to receive their card for free!
During National Library Week the Lake County Animal Shelter is hosting an adoption special. Visitors hoping to adopt a furry friend for free can show any library card, it does not have to be a Lake County account. The Lake County Animal Shelter has had over 1475 positive outcomes since January 1, 2023, and currently have 100 adoptable dogs available. Participants don’t have to take a dog or cat home immediately – they can always volunteer some time at the animal shelter and participate in one of their great programs, such as reading in the cat library.
National Library Week is an excellent opportunity for the Lake County community to rediscover their local libraries and take advantage of the various resources they offer. Libraries in Lake County have a wide variety of books, e-books, audiobooks, digital resources, and multimedia materials that are available for all ages. The libraries also offer services such as computer access, educational programming, and literacy outreach. Everyone is invited to celebrate National Library Week by visiting their local library and discovering all the resources available to them.
