The purpose of the Lakehills Area Library is to make freely available to the citizens of the community printed and other materials, which will aid them in the pursuit of education, information and recreation. The library seeks to promote programs which will stimulate and expand the reading interest of both children and adults, and coordinate this work with that of other educational, cultural and social groups of the community.
