Winter Weather Alert

As winter comes to NWI, we'd like to remind everyone to stay safe while driving. In the event of dangerous weather, LCPL may close or delay opening to ensure the safety of staff and patrons.

If Lake Co. is experiencing extreme weather, call your branch before visiting. Our phone messages, Facebook, and Twitter will be the first places updated in the event of closure, while the website may not be updated as quickly.
