Colonial Beach 's library is a 4,700 square foot facility with over 24,000 items formally known as the Abraham and William Cooper Memorial Branch. Designed by The Lukmire Partnership of Arlington, Virginia, it was funded by a donation from the Douglas Cooper Family and by FOTL fundraising activities.
Starting out in 1972 in a church basement, it moved to a location on Hawthorn Street five years later and in 2000, it moved to it's present location on Washington Avenue.
The facility sometimes doubles as a driver improvement course test site, thanks to the availability of a classroom onsite. It also offers things like computer classes, kids, teen and adult movie nights, children's storytime, afternoon tea and game nights. Check their events calendar for dates and times.
