Cagan Crossings Library Reciprocal Borrowing Contract Ends Soon

Lake County will soon be requiring northeast Polk County residents pay an annual fee to use the Cagan Crossings Library. This is due to Lake County's request to terminate the Reciprocal Borrowing Contract between the Governing Board of the Polk County Library Cooperative (PCLC) and Lake County Library System. Please see the fact sheet and the open letter to northeast Polk residents.
