The Library Services Division consists of the Lake County Library System administrative offices and its 6 branch libraries.
In turn, Lake County Library System is a cooperative of the 6 branch libraries and 9 municipal libraries, joined by agreements to provide access to a full range of library services throughout Lake County. The newest members are the public libraries in Minneola and Howey-in-the-Hills.
Library Services provides the libraries with a fully integrated library automation system, technical support, centralized cataloging, a courier service, networked access to the Internet and web based reference products, a web site, a books-by-mail program, grant writing and marketing assistance, adult and youth program coordination and a county-wide literacy program.
Library services are available free to Lake County residents at all locations throughout the County and through the books-by-mail service. Lake County Library System also has agreements with Lake-Sumter Community College and the library systems in Marion, Seminole, and Volusia counties that permit cross-utilization by patrons of Lake County Library System and patrons of the reciprocating organizations.
