My life at LCC Library by Cori:

  • I was hired to start Jan. 2000 but I wasn’t sure I would have a job because when I was offered the job in Dec 1999 we thought the computers would all crash on New Year’s.
  • Several summers I have bicycled to work.
  • I have participated in the LCC Library Book Discussion Group since it began in 2003.
  • Started going to Florida for Spring Break when I turned 50.
  • My birthday is on pie day but I prefer cake because it is nature’s perfect food.
  • I won a swimming pool in a contest. 

Lakeland Library asks...

Library Display Wall

That's What She Said...

Here are some of the quotes from inspirational women placed on our interactive display wall:

"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends." J. K. Rowling

"I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

National Poetry Month Contest

Help the Library celebrate National Poetry Month in April by stopping by to create some original blackout poetry. Sometimes referred to as found poetry, blackout poetry is created by taking an existing page of text and coloring over or blacking out all but the desired words leaving your own original poem. Text pages and coloring supplies will be provided—you just bring the creativity! Feel free to take your poem with you when you go, or add it to our display for all to admire. One lucky display contributor will be selected at random to receive a prize from the Library!

Library Services

Online Information Literacy Instruction for Distance Learners
Online Library Instruction

Lakeland Librarians are offering a brand new instruction service! To encourage the growth of information literate distance learners, we are now offering synchronous instruction for online classes via WebEx. We can collaborate with faculty teaching online classes to meet the needs of a specific assignment or more generally teach students about discipline-specific resources. Our schedule is flexible, and we are happy to accommodate night and weekend sessions. Schedule an online library instruction session by emailing or calling the reference desk at 440.525.7425. Please indicate you would like library instruction offered online.

Serials, aka magazines, are available for check out. Magazines are kept on shelves along the Library's north wall at the ends of the circulating book shelves. The current issues are kept in the Library, but all other issues can be borrowed for your research and/or reading pleasure.
