Happy 200th Birthday, Indiana!

2016 marks Indiana's 200th year as a state! The Lake County Public Library is excited to help all Hoosiers celebrate as an Official Endorsed Legacy Project.

We'll be celebrating all year long at all nine locations with classes, events, and special displays. We'll even be working with local historical societies to bring the history of your community into the spotlight, both in the library and online. We hope you'll have a great time helping us celebrate this year!
