Spring into warmer weather

Spring has arrived.

Or, maybe not!

Even with winter weather in the air, the atmosphere is always perfect at the Coplay Public Library.

Are you looking for pleasant weather and sunny skies?

Stop in, pick up a book and travel somewhere 60 degrees and sunny without leaving the library.

Or, maybe you want to travel somewhere icy-cold with bone-chilling winds.

Perhaps you'd prefer to travel to another time and enjoy a romantic or mysterious Victorian novel.

With books from our friendly library, the possibilities are endless.
