Lakeland Library Newsletter: November 2021

Find all of your latest Library news here!


Welcome to the Lakeland Library Newsletter!  Each month, we will showcase classes, events, and other fun and interesting facts about the Library and our staff. We will also keep you informed of new resources and services that are designed to assist you in your course work, and personal and professional lives. 


Maddy Hutson, SLI president

Maddy Hutson, Student Library Innovators President

Fun Fact: I've read over 40 books this year so far! I spend all of my free time with my nose in a book :-)

Goals for the library's student group: My main priority for SLI this year is to connect the Lakeland Community and Lake County in general through great books. Beyond connecting individuals through reading, I would love to facilitate more conversation within the library about important issues in our society today. Bringing awareness to underrepresented communities through reading about them is very important to me, and I strive to bring that topic of conversation to our community.

Cassidy Miner, Student Library Innovators Vice President

Fun Fact: I love the outdoors and the environment!

Goals for the library's student group: One goal for this club is to make sure people have access to books because reading is important and can help people. Another goal would be to raise money for people who do not have access to books and other items, so we can purchase some for the community.

What can you borrow through interlibrary loan? Articles, audiobooks, print books, selected pages from books, dvd's and media.
