Welcome to Cornwall Seniors

More than Books
Please come visit the Cornwall Library on Pine St.  We have a great collection of books and wonderful additional  services.
The Cornwall Library has in its collection 30,000 books and much more.  For those who prefer to listen to a book being read, we have approximately 1,500 recorded books and hundreds more that you can download.  For those with reduced vision we have large-print books.  The Connecticut Library also offers recorded books through services for the blind.  We can help you arrange for those services.  The books will be mailed to you.    We also have a page magnifier, a device that magnifies any flat object; the page of a book, a document, or a photo.  The librarian can help you with that, too.    In the reference area, you will find a collection of books on aging, and pamphlets and guides on services available to senior citizens.
We have regular art shows, receptions, and author talks as well as occasional classes on such topics as memoir writing or classes on diabetes management.   You can learn about these via our newsletter or the Cornwall Chronicle.             
The Cornwall Library offers free computer use and access to the internet.  Check our newsletter for information on classes to help you learn to use these services.  Or, come by with your questions and we will do our best to help you.
Look to us if you need copies made or documents faxed.  We offer both services at a nominal fee. 
And, finally, just come visit!  We are warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  We offer hot beverages and home-made cookies.   Out bulletin board is up-to-date with activities and events in Cornwall. We have a very comfortable reading  area where you might run into someone you know!  The Cornwall Library is a friendly place and we look forward to seeing you.
