The library will be celebrating its 120th Anniversary this Saturday Feb 28th from 12 Noon until 2pm. As you can see from the picture of our charter, that is the exact date on which we became incorporated as a library, making us one of the oldest in the Capital Region. Join us on Saturday, where we will debut a slideshow of snapshots from some 50 years of library memories, debut a new exhibit in our display case and so much more! Refreshments will be served and library lovers from near and far are most welcome. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.
The library will be adjusting its hours during the holiday weeks. But only slightly. We will be closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (Dec 24-25), then reopen for regular weekend hours beginning on Friday Dec 26th at 9am. For New Years week, we will close early on Dec 31st, at 2pm, and remain closed on New Years Day. We then reopen again for regular weekend hours on Friday Jan 2nd, 2015. From all of us to you and yours, may it truly be a blessed Christmas season, wherever and with whomever you choose to celebrate. Our warmest thanks for your continued support of the library, and we look forward to having you help us celebrate 120 years of Waterford Library service in 2015!
It is once again that time of the year, when we close down for a short period of time in order to continue our multi-phase interior renovation project. We will be closed from Thursday August 21st until Tuesday Sept 3rd. During that period of time, no library materials will be due and access to the building will be limited. Patrons can return materials to our outside drop-slot. Reserves will be blocked while we are closed, unless you designate a nearby library for pick-up, such as Clifton Park or Mechanicville. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure and appreciate your patience while we strive to make our library ever better.
The Friends of the Library have been selling raffle tickets for a chance to win 4 tickets to the upcoming run of Phantom of the Opera at Proctor’s Theater in Schenectady. This is the final week to purchase tickets! The winning raffle will be drawn during Canal Fest this coming Saturday May 10th. Tickets will be available for sale during Canal Fest from 9am-12pm, and the drawing will take place at Noon. The winner will be able to pick up their tickets at the library. All proceeds from the raffle go to help the Friends support the mission of the Library.
