Online Databases

Need a newspaper or magazine article on almost any topic? Need to finish some homework? Use these databases! Most of these are subscription resources that the library provides for Waterford residents. Most of them can be used both from home and at the library.

You will need an active Waterford Township Public Library card to access many of these resources. Please visit this page to learn more about how to apply for a library card or update your existing card.
