Lorain County's #1 Destination

The Lorain Public Library System is the most visited and most essential cultural and educational resource in Lorain County.

Nearly 900,000 visitors annually borrow more than two million books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs from the Lorain Public Library System. One in three Lorain County residents has a Lorain Public Library System library card.

Community based libraries in Avon, North Ridgeville, Sheffield Lake, Columbia Station, South Lorain and Downtown Lorain - in addition to the Bookmobile - compromise the Lorain Public Library System. Each library makes available to its local community unparalleled technological resources including computers, internet access, Wi-Fi and premium databases.
