We are pleased to announce that our Library is officially beginning a new chapter

To begin, the Trustees of the Village Library of Cooperstown extend their heartfelt gratitude to Library Director, David Kent, for his 22 years of service. His focus, consistency and steadfast commitment to the library over the past two decades is admirable. We will miss seeing his bike outside the entrance. Please stop by the Library to bid him well in his retirement before his final day on Friday, April 2.

On April 21st we are excited to welcome our new Library Director, Heather Urtz. A Mohawk, N.Y. native, Heather brings a wealth of library experience with diverse urban and rural communities. Her most recent position was at the Mid-York Library System in Utica. She is ready to collaborate to build programming efforts that reflect the vibrancy of our unique community. She has already impressed many of us with her creative and energetic ideas to make the library a welcoming and inclusive space for all.

During this time of transition for our Library’s leadership, we will be temporarily revising the Library’s public hours from April 1, 2021 until May 31, 2021 to help us get our bearings.

Our new hours will be:
Sunday & Monday – CLOSED
Tuesday through Friday – Open 9:00am through 5:00pm
Saturday – Open 10:00am through 2:00pm
