Abstract: We obtain an exact formula for the average of values of $ L$-series over two independent odd characters. The average of any positive moment of values at $ s=1$ is then expressed in terms of finite cotangent sums subject to congruence conditions. As consequences, bounds on such cotangent sums, limit points for the average of first moment of $ L$-series at $ s=1$ and the average size of positive moments of character sums related to the class number are deduced.
