About the Library

The Cornelius Public Library, established in 1912, has grown from a small library located in the back of a pool room with only 200 books to lend out, to a 530 sq. ft. garage inside of the old city council chambers shared by the fire department and city hall in 1963, to a 3,025 sq. ft. space within the Cornelius Civic Center in 1982, to the now 14,000 sq. ft. library! This one of a kind, three story building, completed in 2019, houses the library and YMCA center on the first floor and affordable senior housing on the second and third floors.

The library features dedicated Children and Teen areas, comfortable seating and social areas, a fireplace, five small-group study rooms, a community room for library programs and large gatherings, and a 5,000 square foot courtyard with an amphitheater for outdoor programs.

The library houses more than 30,000 books, movies, laptops, music, and more! The library is proud to house the largest percentage of bilingual/Spanish items in WCCLS libraries, and plenty of bilingual staff to offer support to the diverse needs of our community.

Free events to expand literacy and informal learning for all ages are offered throughout the year.
