          43 students checked out books during  this unusual summer for students.  A special drawing of names will be held on Thursday, September, 3. Names drawn will be posted on the library front window. Winners can come into the library during open hours the weekend of September 4-5 to choose a prize. For those who are unable to come on that weekend, they can claim a prize whenever they can come to the library.


Progress is being made.  The previous meeting room area is now ready for shelves to be brought in and rearrangement of existing shelving will be taking place in the next few days or weeks. The new addition area is nearing completion as well but no exact date can be announced at this time. Again, thank you for your patience.

The Lake View Public Library is now open to adults and children. Although only 2 adults only are being allowed in our computer room. There is a 1 hour time limit unless no one is waiting.
