The Cedarburg Public Library provides information and resources to all citizens of the community for their continuing recreational, educational, and cultural needs.
1. CPL is part of a system of libraries
CPL is part of the Eastern Shores Library System (ESLS), a system of 13 member libraries: 5 in Ozaukee County (libraries in Cedarburg, Grafton, Saukville, Mequon-Thiensville, & Port Washington) & 8 in Sheboygan County. The system operates the Bookmobile, which serves many of the “unlibraried” communities in Ozaukee & Sheobygan counties. EasiCat is the online, shared, automated catalog of all of the items owned by the 13 libraries & the Bookmobile. In addition to library materials, this shared catalog also contains links to eSources: electronic books, databases, and related websites.
