The Cordova Public Library is moving into the Cordova Center!
We will be closed October 27 through November 7 so that we can move the entire library collection and furnishings. To make the closure less painful for patrons, permanent patrons will be able to check out 10 items to keep them stocked with books while we are closed. We will be using volunteers in various ways for the move. Please call us at 424-6667 if you would like to help. The finale to our move will be a 'Book Brigade" using community energy and enthusiasm to move books from the old building to the new building. More information on this fun event will be coming soon.
