Orange County Library System Ends Reciprocal Borrowing with Lake County Library System

At the request of the Orange County Library System, the reciprocal borrowing agreement between Orange County and Lake County will end effective July 1, 2012. The Lake County Library System will continue to issue cards to Orange County residents who are eligible for reciprocal borrowing cards through June 30, 2012. All reciprocal borrowing cards for Orange County residents will expire one year from last date of issue, therefore, no later than June 30, 2013.

The Lake County Library System would like to thank our patrons from Orange County. Non-resident cards for Lake County Library System libraries will continue to be available for $40.00 per year.

The Lake County Library System, in an effort to provide residents with the freedom of access to information, entered into agreements with libraries in Marion, Osceola, Polk, Seminole and Volusia Counties and Lake Sumter Community College which allows Lake County patrons to borrow library materials from those libraries. Residents of participating counties and Lake-Sumter Community College students also have access to the Lake County Library System libraries. The location of political boundaries and mobility of Central Florida residents have led to the realization that library users are better served through the sharing of resources among library systems.
