Summer Reading Program


Welcome to the Copperas Cove Public Library!

We are located in the heart of Copperas Cove adjacent to the Central Fire Station. Come in to use our Internet terminals or our Wi-Fi connection, read to your children, catch up with current magazine or newspaper articles, borrow audio books on CD, or maybe even check out a book to read. You can research a pet project or a health concern or just relax and enjoy a good book in a comfortable setting.

If you are a new user of the library please bring in some identification and proof of local residency such as a utility bill, lease or official identification with a local address in order to apply for your library card. Non-residents can obtain a card for a small annual fee.

Recent items added to the library:

In addition to borrowing books, CDs and DVDs, library card holders can download and borrow children’s books or current, popular e-books for teens and adults from the library’s collection. You can also search our licensed online databases of journal articles and other current information at work, home or in the library using the TexShare Databases. You will need to log in to your library account at Copperas Cove Biblionix Catalog to access the databases and then follow the “TexShare Databases” link on the left side of the page.

New books are always coming in so be sure to take a look at that section of shelves just to the left of the circulation desk when you visit the library, or review our new book list online.

Adult and Youth Programs

The library’s collection includes popular fiction and non-fiction books, graphic novels and large print works as well as videos and audio CDs of favorite books. Books not in the inventory can be requested through Inter-Library Loan for a modest fee, so let us know if you are looking for something that you can’t find in our collection. Join us for the many special programs offered throughout the year, or take part in the Book Club. You are also always welcome to participate in the Friends of the Library activities or to volunteer in the library.

Children’s Programs

The children’s room in the library has a wide selection of books, CD books and video (both VHS and DVD) and stuffed toys. We even have a puppet theater! We offer Toddler Time for 1-3 year old children on Tuesdays at 10 am and Story Time for 3-5 year old children on Thursdays at 10 am. The annual Summer Reading program runs from mid-June into early July with special activities and performers in the library each week.

See you at the Library!
