1. Just an FYI- Munster & Highland Libraries were part of the Lake Co Public Library system since the 1960's(??). They benefitted early on from administrative and equipment costs that are shared by LCPL locations. Merger costs would be huge now.

  2. **Applause!!** So happy to see the Hammond Public Library system rallying their taxpayers to action and educating the public on what is happening between the city council and the library. Good luck HPL!

  3. I really love the updates that were done to the Highland Library a few years back. Evenings when I have stopped in there, the seats are filled! People are reading the books, working at the computers, using the free wi-fi. So glad to see that other Highland residents recognize the importance of their public library!

  4. Interlibrary loans can be checked by logging into your home library's card catalog on the web and entering your barcode number and password. After checking your account at your home library on record, we see no ILL requests made by you. If you have further questions, please direct them to the library. You may call us; we have phones. We will also answer your web questions. If you'd like to continue this conversation here in the @nwi comments, please let us all know when you placed your requests and for which titles.

  5. Mayor! What about that fabulous library system that is headquartered in Valparaiso? You know, The Peoples' University! The Porter County Library system, headquartered in Valparaiso, rocks! With a great library, you have a great city!

  6. Mayor McDermott has yet to speak to either Hammond's Library Board of Trustees or the Lake County Public Library's Board concerning 'merging.' Yet, McDermott misleads elected state officials that both library districts want to be merged. Nice plan. Can we get rid of the elected officials and who are trying to run the show? It's not your show to run, Mayor.

  7. This is so sad for all the teachers that the board has made it their priority to reward the administration first. Of course it appears bad to the rest of the employees. What is the board and the administration thinking?!!?
