What's New


INTERLIBRARY LOAN SERVICE IS BACK IN OPERATION.

Interlibrary loan service returns to Cornwall Public Library with the delivery of items now done through Canada Post. There may be delays in receiving items as the service resumes. In addition, some audiovisual materials may not be available for borrowing because some libraries may have opted to not lend. Please call the library for more information.


ROTARY CLUB OF CORNWALL DONATES TO LIBRARY

Cornwall Public Library received a $ 500 donation from the Rotary Club of Cornwall, an amount which will go a long way in the library’s effort to keep literacy thriving during the summer months. The donation will be applied to the library’s TD Summer Reading Club for kids, a long-standing and very popular club, jam-packed with innovative activities, reading and just plain fun.  Library CEO Dawn Kiddell, accepted the donation on June 11.  See picture here.
