Welcome to the Waterford Public Library located in the historic  D&H railroad depot in Waterford, NY.

April 19: Family Book Club

despermouseWe are debuting a new family program series this month, called Family Book Club. The idea is for families to get together and read a popular children’s book, then join us at the library to discuss the book AND then watch a movie based on the book! Our first title is “The Tale of Despereaux” by Kate DiCamillo. We will be gathering here on Saturday April 19th beginning at noon to watch the movie and discuss the book. Oh and eat some soup! We are requesting that families interested in participating register in advance for the program, which is open to children of all ages and their families. Contact Liz at 237-0891 or lliddington@sals.edu for complete information.

And now for a Bali Big Finish!

Bing Crosby - Road to BaliHard to believe that six months have already passed, (some might say the longest six months of winter EVER!), but we are at the end of another Classic Movie Monday schedule. We are continuing our theme from last week, with lots of songs and dancing with two of the best in the game, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, not to mention the beautiful Dorthy LaMour! “Road to Bali” was released in 1952 and is considered one of the best of the many “Road Pictures” from that era! Showtime as always is 6pm, and admission is free. So join us, one last time until the the next time….
