Upcoming programs:

Tuesday Teens
Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm from September 10th through May 26th 
(Tuesday Teens will not be held on December 24th, 2019, March 10th, 2020 or Tuesdays when the Waterford School District is closed for inclement weather)

Middle and high school students are welcome to join us the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month to hang out with friends and to meet new ones. We'll provide games, activities, craft materials, and light refreshments for you to enjoy. Or, just come and work on homework or socialize with other kids your age.

No registration required.  Drop in anytime between 3:30 and 5:00.

Books and Brags
We’re starting a new program at the library to highlight real-life ways that library books (and online resources) have helped you. Did you use a cookbook to bake a cake for a special occasion?  Did you pass your SATs with flying colors using one of our resources?  Did you create your own manga characters using one of our drawing books?

Submit a picture showing the result of how a book, magazine, or online resource helped you achieve something.  Examples: A good grade on a report, a selfie with you and an art project, a photo of a college admission letter, etc.  Let us know which book(s), magazine, or online resource(s) you used. Photos may be submitted in person at the Adult Reference desk, sent to waterfordmilib@gmail.com, or tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We will share the photos on social media and in the library.
