Library tours may be scheduled throughout the week (April 4-10, 2021) by contacting Emanuel Zoberman, Law Librarian, at (847) 377-2267 or EZoberman@lakecountyil.gov
Questions and Answers Is What We Do!
This year’s national theme is "Welcome to the Library,” and the William D. Block Memorial Law Library is eager to make you feel welcome by encouraging you to ask questions and get answers. After all, isn’t that what the Law Library is for?
The Law Library and its dedicated staff handles thousands of questions throughout the year. During this week, we are pleased to feature a few examples of actual questions by our wonderful patrons.

National Library Week 2021: Welcome to Your Library
The theme for National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021) is “Welcome to Your Library." This concept promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use library services. Since the beginning of the pandemic, libraries have shifted focus and found ways to adapt to the changing world by expanding resources to meet the needs of patrons. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds, and provide access to technology, multimedia content and educational programs.
