It has often been stated that our library resembles ‘Cheers,’ where everybody knows your name. Visit and see for yourself!
The Cos Cob Library has a long history, with the current building opening in 1999. Long in need of renovation, and following years of exploration, we are excited to finally undertake this vital work.

Your support is essential to bringing this dream to fruition, as we build a new and improved library that will assist in Cos Cob’s daily needs, and also grow with our robust community.

Thank you for your time and efforts in supporting the campaign.
