We are here to help!

Lorain Public Library System's Department of Outreach Services strives to make library programs and services accessible to community members. Working to support the goals and needs of our community and educational partners, our aim is to build lasting partnerships for the collective empowerment and social vitality of Lorain County. 

Our Services

* Deposit Collections

Lorain Public Library System depository collections are a free service available to eductors, senior centers and community centers who are aiming to host a small collection of library materials within their classroom, waiting room or activity center.
