About the Library

Cornelius Public Library

The Cornelius Library has served the community for over 100 years. We are a small neighborly library with about 20,000 items. We share books with WCCLS and millions of items can be delivered here free for you to pick up.

We specialize in programs for all family members and have a nice children’s area with lots of books and toys. We also have the largest percentage of bilingual/Spanish items in WCCLS libraries, and plenty of bilingual staff to offer support.
