The new El Dorado Springs branch of the Cedar County Library is open to the public. We have had a wonderful first week open and have had over 200 patrons since Monday. We are now accepting requests for use of the meeting room and will be starting to host programming in March. Later in the spring, we will have a grand opening ceremony. We would like to thank the community for your patience and support during this process. Our staff looks forward to seeing you soon.
New Building Cedar County Library – El Dorado Springs Branch
The new Cedar County Library – El Dorado Springs Branch building is almost
completely done. There are still a few details to finish up before the project is
100% complete. Contents of the old building have been moved over to the new
building and are currently being organized and placed. The old building will be
ready for demolition within the next few weeks and then a gravel parking lot will
be provided until weather is warm enough to lay asphalt.
The Library will remain closed for regular services until the old building is cleared
away and a temporary gravel parking lot can be made.
The Cedar County Library District Board wants to thank our employees for all their
work in accomplishing this move. A special thanks to El Dorado Springs City
Manager, Bruce Rogers, for the City’s support and special thanks goes to Riley
Julian and his crew from City Maintenance for moving all those heavy boxes of
books and many other items.
We also want to thank our library patrons and the many community supporters
and contributors for helping accomplish this goal of building a new Cedar County
Library in El Dorado Springs.
Once the project is 100% complete, an Open House will be scheduled to welcome
all to come see the beautiful new library. Until then, we want to thank you in
advance for your patience through the inconvenience of our transition to a new

The library is starting a new program for any children not yet in kindergarten. The program is designed to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and to encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
We will have book records to help you keep track of the number of books you have read, a sticker for each 100 books read, and a bigger prize at 500 books. At 1,000 books we will have a prize, a sticker, and a certificate of completion.
