Cumberland

About the Branch

The Cumberland Branch library opened in the old City Hall in 1947. Cumberland library briefly withdrew from the regional system in 1967, but renewed interest allowed for a new branch to open in 1975. In 2013, the branch was reopened in a new ~3,200 sq. ft. space at 2746 Dunsmuir Avenue (over double the size of the previous branch).
