Teens and adults can tinker, experiment and create with tools in both guided and open lab sessions.

Reading Room
Step away from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy the serenity of our new reading refuge.

Living Room

Covered Book Drop
In a hurry? Drop your items in our new covered book drop—rain or shine.

This location was originally opened in 1961 as a gift from the Cooper family in memory of John Hughes Cooper.

"Cooper has truly become the Forest Acres hub for arts, literacy, and community events, as well as a neighborhood gathering space equipped with the latest technology. Whether you’ll be heading
to the quieter reading room, a coding class in the makerspace, or a storytime with the grandkids—we can’t wait to grab a coffee and connect with you."
-Heather Green, Richland Library Cooper Manager
