Library Updates & Resources

LPCPL’s Library Online +

Here at LPCPL, we believe libraries are centers of community life with a focus on reading, lifelong learning, and public involvement. We welcome and invite all into the library, and at this time, we hope you will visit us online. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, many of our online resource vendors are extending additional access to their resources. These are listed below.

For the complete listing of resources go to LPCPL’s library online to find eBooks, digital magazines, downloadable audiobooks, streaming movies, and online research and learning tools. If you don’t have a Library card you can get immediate access by signing up for an Online Borrowing Card (OBR) on our catalog home page.

If you have questions, check Frequently Asked Questions or contact us directly at 219-362-6156.
