Borrowing at Lester Public Library

The most powerful card in your wallet is your library card.  It provides free access to a world of information and resources.

There are many ways to borrow from the library.  You may still borrow things traditionally by dropping in, browsing the shelves, and checking out.  You also have access to digital content that you can use without ever leaving your home, office or the deck chair at your vacation property in the Bahamas.  All you need is a library card.
