The New El Dorado Springs Branch is Open!

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.

A message from the Cedar County Library Board.

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 
CCLD Board of Trustees 

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

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.
For more information you can check out the program’s website here.
