Did you know.....

The Lane Memorial Library is open 60 hours per week, including 4 evenings and every Saturday?

We host two book discussions for adults: one on the third Thursday of the month at 1:00 p.m., and the second on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m.

In 2008 volunteers donated over 2,415 hours of labor to help with library tasks and events.

Our collection of 157,970 items to borrow includes over 4,600 videos and DVDs, a 42-piece art collection, and 2000 large print books.

We subscribe to 13 newspapers and 291 magazines.

We hold two large book sales per year, one specifically for children and one for the general public.

We fill 99% of the interlibrary loan items our patrons request, sometimes from as far away as California.

We hold an average of 16 story times every month.

A total of $2975 was collected in our donation jars in 2008.
