  • Larry R. Jackson Branch Library Winter Workshop

    Winter Workshop at Larry R. Jackson Branch

    The weather outside is delightful, but we can pretend it's frightful. We're ready to snip, glue, color, tape, and imagine our way into the winter season! On Monday December 18th from 10 am-12 pm, drop-into the Larry R. Jackson Branch Library for a variety of seasonal crafts for kids and some delicious winter treats!

    The Winter Workshop is open to all ages, though crafts will be geared toward elementary and middle-school ages. No registration required.

    PCLC Libraries App Is Retiring

    The Polk County Library Cooperative (PCLC) Libraries app is no longer functional and has been retired.

    We are in the process of replacing it with a new library app, but this process will take some time before the new app can be released. You can still search the online library catalog and manage your library account online, or check your account by calling or visiting your local Lakeland library.
