About the Library

The library was established in 1912 and moved to its current location in 2019. Cornelius houses many bilingual/Spanish language items in its collection to serve its diverse community.

Each of the 16 WCCLS libraries are individually governed – by either a city, Washington County, or a nonprofit board. Cornelius is a city library.
