Summer Programming Continues
A public library has been part of the educational, cultural, and social life of Waterbury for more than a century. Its beginnings can be traced to the arrival in town of George and Edward A. Colby in 1856. The Colby family set up a lyceum for weekly discussions of issues of the day. The lyceum fanned an interest in reading and led to the creation of an association and the purchase of about 500 books. The Waterbury Public Library Association, established in 1888, eventually took over this collection.
Today the Library is located at 28 North Main Street in Waterbury Village (phone: 244-7036,) in the historic former home of Civil War surgeon Dr. Henry Janes. Here you'll find information, entertainment, friendly staff, and free programs for all ages. The first floor of the house is bursting with books, audio books, magazines, video tapes and DVD's. Computers with Internet access and wi-fi connectivity are available free to residents and travelers alike. Home delivery is available for Waterbury residents who are unable to visit the Library.
The Library shares its building with the Waterbury Historical Society Museum. The Museum on the second floor may be visited during regular Library hours; however, it is not wheelchair accessible.
The Library offers programs for people of all ages. Story times introduce babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to the pleasures of reading, while older children enjoy after school and summer activities. Adults participate in book discussions, attend talks and cultural events, and learn new skills through a variety of workshops and presentations.
