Leesburg website offers information and activities
LEESBURG, FL - Although city facilities are closed to the public due to the Safer at Home order, Leesburg’s staff is continuously working to help our residents find information from local and government organizations as well as discover ways to stay mentally and physically active during this challenging time.
The Recreation Department webpage has added an Online Recreation Resource Center that includes links to websites with health tips, athletic drills, exercise options and virtual field trips. Families can work out together and then visit a museum - all without leaving their home. Information can be found at www.leesburgflorida.gov/recreation.
The Leesburg Public Library also offers a variety of resources. From eBooks to movies and educational courses, there is something for everyone. Current library card holders can easily access all of the free digital material on the 24-Hour Library and Research and Learn pages. Lake County residents who do not have a library card can visit the Lake County Library website at www.mylakelibrary.org to sign up for a temporary digital access card. The process is simple and patrons will be able to get a physical card once the library reopens. Visit the library web page at www.leesburgflorida.gov/library to view and use all of the free digital items.
The Leesburg Resource Center has great information for residents including paper unemployment applications, notices about businesses that are hiring and contacts for community organizations offering many types of assistance. Staff can be reached at 352-728-9765 or visit the Leesburg Resource Center Facebook page
