To sign up, go to our home page, click on Databases, then Education & Libraries, then Learning Express Library. If you are using your home computer to access the database, you will be prompted for your library card number. Register as a New User and then you can log back in as a Returning User at any time to take the practice tests. There are many types of practice tests to choose from and the database is free!


Hey kids of all ages - the wait is almost over! Friday, June 4 the Summer Reading Program begins for adults, teens, and children. Here at La Porte Community Library we will have many interesting, informative and fun programs throughout the summer. To keep up with all that is going on check out our events calendar or pick up a summer flyer when you come to the library. Let's make this the best summer ever!


If you want to see an example of the talent of our La Porte Film Committee, take a look at their Summer Reading Video which is posted on this youtube link . For the past 6 years a small group of dedicated young people have assisted our children's librarians with the creation and filming of a short video to promote the Summer Reading Program. Each of the 26 branches receive a copy to use as the librarians make school visits. Our Friends of La Porte Library have graciously provided the funding for cameras, sound equipment and costuming. We at La Porte Community Library are very proud of our talented children and librarians.
