Our Next Chapter

The previous fiscal year marked the start of our next chapter of services and support of our community.  At this time one year ago, we were beginning the initial phase of our Heating & Air Conditioning construction project.  The dust has settled and we are still excited about the opportunities created by this library redesign. 

Take a look back in our Report to the Community and continue to stay tuned!


Battle of the Books Registration

We have some exciting news... Registration for the Battle of the Books opens on Thursday, 3/1! If you are not familiar with this program, it is a double-elimination competition that requires teams of three to four students in grades four, five, or six to read books from a selected reading list. Teams are formed by the students themselves – team members may be in any of the three grades and may attend any local school (this includes our homeschool families!). Teams may split up the reading list however they choose.

Goodbye to Sharon Buckley

Our amazing library clerk, Sharon Buckley, has retired. Sharon Addison, City Manager and Mayor Butler presented her with a plaque recognizing her contributions to the city, library and its patrons. We will miss Sharon but know that she is starting a new chapter of her life.

NEW Early Learning Toys

Hello all! Thanks to a generous grant from the North Country Library System, we were able to purchase some much-needed toys for our Children's Room! New toys include a mail box for letter writing, a magnetic board for learning about gears (which take it from me - those little things are addicting to play with!), and an awesome market play set. Our goal is to help library parents engage with their children in a way that supports early reading skills. Stop by and see our new selections soon!

Alright, now for our winners (drum roll please!):

Report to the Community (2015-2016)

Drawing inspiration from our location in the heart of Watertown's Downtown, our 2015-2016 Report to the Community is now available. 

The Library fills many important roles for the City of Watertown and the surrounding area by providing access to information, technology, and entertainment to briefly name a few.  Learn more about our services and a few statistics from our completed fiscal year by viewing our most recent Report.
