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. 

Millionth Circulation!

Every six years, a million people walk through the library doors and a million books go out the doors. Our millionth checkout since July 2010 was Patricia Southcott. She won a gift basket with a Kindle Fire, $100 Amazon Gift card bookmark, courtesy of the Friends group, a Flower Library blanket, tea, cocoa and lots of books.



Senator Patty Ritchie is a Friend to Libraries, again!

Senator Patty Ritchie secured $2000 for Flower Memorial Library! As she said in the letter, "Libraries play a very important role in our communities and I thank you for the work you do to improve access to books, technology, culture and opportunities for learning in our region."

Just a few months ago, she secured a grant for $100,000 for the new HVAC system at Flower Library in Watertown.

See our Thank You video to Senator Ritchie for the HVAC grant!

Thank you Senator Ritchie!


Children's Summer Reading Survey

Flower Library's Summer Reading Program for children ages 11 and under ends on August 11th, but that doesn't mean our summer is completely over--we still need your help! By submitting your thoughts about our reading program and events, you'll help us shape the summer of 2017.

Copies of the survey are available at the Children's Desk. You can submit them there anytime!

Tween Survey

We're making some changes and we need your help! Are you a tween (ages 10-13) or caregiver of a tween? Let us know what you'd like to see the library provide for you!

Take the survey online here, or fill one out in the library.

2016 Battle of the Books Winners

Our library is proud to announce that the winners of our local Battle of the Books 2016 competition are the Nerds! This was a bittersweet victory as this was the last year that the returning champs were eligible to compete.

I'd also like to thank all of our participants and their families--I was blown away not only by how well you knew the books, but with how well you treated one another by being great sports. I walked away this year excited about leading you and already looking forward to the next year. My teams are rock stars!
