We are phasing out most phone calls for notifying you that you have books on hold. Our catalog system sends automatic emails - and now texts! - so we want to streamline the process.
|Books to Read Before You Die|
Posted on: 2:11 pm Mon Oct 8th, 2018
These novels, short stories, non-fiction books and poetry were selected because they speak to central concerns of the 21st century life. Among these concerns are race, heredity, identity, war, and the vanishing wild. Though vastly different, they each create a stunning portrait of the dislocation, perseverance, and hope at the heart of life in 21st century America.

|Maryellen Sullivan Abstract Photography on Display|
Posted on: 5:19 pm Wed Sep 26th, 2018
The Waterbury Library has space in their cafe for artists to display their work. From photography to pastels, to watercolor, the Artist's Cafe has boasted work from locals from the surrounding towns. The library's latest artist, Maryellen Sullivan Abstract Photographer is from Stowe. The library will be showing her work for the next six weeks into November in both the cafe and the children's area.
A public library has been part of the educational, cultural, and social life of Waterbury for more than a century. Its beginnings can be traced to the arrival in town of George and Edward A. Colby in 1856. The Colby family set up a lyceum for weekly discussions of issues of the day. The lyceum fanned an interest in reading and led to the creation of an association and the purchase of about 500 books. The Waterbury Public Library Association, established in 1888, eventually took over this collection.
Today the Library is located at 28 North Main Street in Waterbury Village (phone: 244-7036,) in the historic former home of Civil War surgeon Dr. Henry Janes. Here you'll find information, entertainment, friendly staff, and free programs for all ages. The first floor of the house is bursting with books, audio books, magazines, video tapes and DVD's. Computers with Internet access and wi-fi connectivity are available free to residents and travelers alike. Home delivery is available for Waterbury residents who are unable to visit the Library.
The Library shares its building with the Waterbury Historical Society Museum. The Museum on the second floor may be visited during regular Library hours; however, it is not wheelchair accessible.
The Library offers programs for people of all ages. Story times introduce babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to the pleasures of reading, while older children enjoy after school and summer activities. Adults participate in book discussions, attend talks and cultural events, and learn new skills through a variety of workshops and presentations.
