LAKE COUNTY — April is National Library Month and Lake County's libraries are hoping residents use this as an opportunity to rediscover their local library.

Pathfinder Library will forgive all fines for overdue items until the end of April. This, however, does not include fines on previously returned late items. Additionally, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m on Saturday, April 25, the Pathfinder Library will host a children's movie day. The film "Big Hero 6" will be screened and refreshments will be served.

The Luther Library also will forgive fines during the month of April as part of National Library Month. It will host its annual tea party to kick off their summer reading program. This year's theme is superheros, and Captain America (and possibly some of his super powered friends) will be making an appearance.

Chase Library will not offer any special programs for the month, but staff members hope people will take part in their regular activities like children's story time and book club.

"We're all appreciative of the people who voted last year for the millage and we hope this month is a good way to thank them for their support," said Gail Ganger, director of the Luther Library. "With the end of the school year coming up, we hope parents will start bringing their kids in even more so they can get some good books during their summer break."

The staffs and library boards of all three libraries said they would like to thank everyone who has shown support for the libraries of Lake County throughout the years and they hope everyone will continue to visit the libraries for years to come.
