Cornwall Public Library


The Cornwall Public Library connects people, information and ideas to inspire learning, provoke curiosity, advance knowledge and strengthen our community. We rely on three great resources – our staff, our collections and our physical and virtual spaces – to promote an engaged and informed citizenry.

We house a significant collection of local history that includes books, maps, newspaper articles, post cards and photographs.
