Online Library Access - Anywhere

Welcome to your online Lake County Public Library!

Have You Changed Your PIN Yet?
     • Help, I have no idea how to do that!

Use your eLibrary Card (formerly Digital Access Cards) to access any of the resources you find here. If you have questions about using your card, just give us a call or use our Ask a Librarian form!

If your school is not one of those partnered with Lake County Public Library, tell your administration you're interested! Partnering with the library means that you get an eLibrary Card/Digital Access Card so you can use library resources right away from any location without ever setting foot in one of our buildings.

Research for Projects and Homework

Here we have a fine selection of databases for your research needs. English paper coming up? Gotcha covered. Science project? No problem. Anything you need to learn about, you can find it here.
